On Trend: The Laser Cut Look
Once only used in industrial applications, laser cut patterns and inspired cut-out designs are turning up everywhere from modern furniture to fashion. The look is delicate, fresh and often finished with a bright coat of paint.
Though the designs are delicate, the process to create them is anything but. True laser cut patterns are created by directing the output of a high-power laser (with the assistance of a computer) at the material to be cut. The material is then melted, burned, vaporized, or blown away by a jet of gas. Through this process, intricate patterns are created out of strong materials to create an illusion of lightness.
This roundup of intricate modern furniture designs with the laser cut looks, has some of our favorite pieces for throughout the home.
