Kae Woei is the founder of XYZWorkshop, a little creative Melbourne studio formed in early 2013 with his wife Elena Low. XYZ Workshop became a creative outlet for Kae Woei and Elena from their day-to-day jobs, both practising Architects at the time. Much like architecture, they were drawn into the potential of 3D printing as it fused aspects of art, sculpture and technology.
Their creative explorations were fuelled by the desire to experiment and play with additive manufacturing. leading them to create some special pieces, most notably the InBloom dress; one of the first fully 3D printed flexible dresses that was entirely printed on a domestic desktop 3D printer.
The inBloom dress has been featured ont the Discovery Channel and also made an appearance at the White House, when former first lady Michelle Obama hosted an event for fashion education. Kae Woei now continues his work in 3D printing with Imaginables Pty Ltd by consulting companies and education institutions as well as providing schools with resources for activity-based learning.
