ARTSculture and installation can take the most from the integration of new and old fabrication techniques. Nowadays with digital strategies it is possible to build high com- plex models for casting or build final ob- jects through machine processing or additive technologies, as well it is possible to make 3D scale reliefs of every object to the smallest detail paving the way for artists to imagine a complete new vision of sculp- ture. As well there is a growing attitude in using old artisan crafting to new and unex- pected results.
Design, above all for high-end limited editions, has used digital technologies since their inception. Today it is striving its ef- forts in embracing futuristic techniques to produce surprising objects where beauty and function share place. The use of cutting-edge digital processing combined with the work of skilled artisans has completely changed the way in which design objects are conceived and fabricated.
