Impossible was produced for the Model Ideas exhibition during Milan Salone Del Mobile, 2003. The cutting edge exhibition sought to introduce 3D printed samples as objects in their own right and the designers were encouraged to produce designs which could not be achieved by other means as a way to draw attention to the emerging technology.

The concept behind Impossible was simple and naive. It was to create a vessel for water using only the handles. The void at the centre of the piece, which the body of liquid would typically inhabit, was impossible to achieve via the production methods of the time.

3D printing was a relatively new and inaccessible medium and post the exhibition many of the designs were put into limited production. Impossible proved to be impossible to produce in porcelain. A badge of honour of sorts.
