‘Kerameikos’ is the root of the word ‘ceramics’ – the art of firing clay – and where KERAMIK, a Greek design studio specializing in clay 3D printing, gets its name.

Framed Visualisation, a 3D design architectural office that has been offering design and 3D photorealistic rendering services for nearly 10 years, was founded by Theodore Samaras in 2014. KERAMIK is Framed Visualisation’s latest initiative that focuses on the design and production of a collection of clay 3D printed, eco-friendly lighting, furniture products, and accessories.

“3D design entered our daily life as the most useful tool that helped us to visualize and implement our projects in the fastest possible and most efficient way. Having all this experience as a starting point, we started discussions on what could be the next step for our company,” said Elli Saravelou, Marketing Director of KERAMIK. “After many discussions with several material 3D printer manufacturers and bearing in mind our ethical approach to sustainability and eco-friendliness, we were presented with the option of clay printing and decided to give it a shot and explore the opportunities that this technology could offer us.”

KERAMIK’s goal is to create innovative, functional and environmentally friendly products, which add a new perspective to the design space. Using clay as a primary material, the company creates sustainable and durable products, for indoor or outdoor use, adapted to the needs and aesthetic vision of each client – something made much more practical through the use of 3D printing.

“It’s amazing how a raw and natural ingredient like clay can transform its essence into something digitized that lasts over time. Ceramic objects have always been a large part of our daily lives, for thousands of years, and clay has been used to create and sculpt both practical and durable objects. With 3D design and printing we can achieve complex geometries that would be impossible to create with traditional ceramic techniques,” continued Elli. “Thus, we created a different kind of art. A forward-looking era that combines history with new design practices.”
