PETER IS A BELGIAN DESIGNER MASTERED IN 3D TECHNOLOGY AND PRINTING. 

IMMEDIATELY AFTER HIS GRADUATION IN 1987, PETER DONDERS BECAME SELF-EMPLOYED AS A CARPENTER AND EXPERIMENTED FROM EARLY ON WITH SPECIAL SHAPES AND MATERIALS.

1999 WAS A MILESTONE IN HIS LIFE WHEN HE SWITCHED FROM PURE CRAFTSMANSHIP TO DRAWING ON THE COMPUTER IN 3D AND CAD, WHICH HE DEVELOPED IN SELF-STUDY.

DURING HIS CAREER, HE WAS INVITED TO SEVERAL CONFERENCES ALL OVER THE WORLD TO SPEAK ABOUT HIS APPROACH ON THE 3D DRAWING PROGRAMS. HIS INNOVATIVE APPLICATION OF TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN WELL RECEIVED BY ARCHITECTS SUCH AS SIR NORMAN FOSTER AND ZAHA HADID AND IS STILL REVOLUTIONARY TODAY.

THE WORK OF PETER IS POSSIBLY THE BEST EXAMPLE OF HOW TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP AND 3D DESIGN WORK TOGETHER.


IT'S STILL A MANUAL LABOUR OF LOVE.
