French start-up Drawn is to launch its first range of fully-customisable 3D print design furniture following the success of a Kickstarter project. At time of going to press, Drawn had raised over €20,000 (£14,216) to fund its venture, beating its initial goal of €15,000 (£10,663). 

Each buyer is able to shape the design of their furniture – making decisions on aspects such as dimensions, shape, colour, and material. The design software allows for easy and fast changes to existing ideas and the jobs can be printed in roughly two hours by the company's bespoke 3D printer Galatéa, a giant robotic arm which was adapted from an industrial machine found in an automobile factory by Drawn's creator, Sylvain Charpiot.

Drawn aims to release its own line of 3D-printed furniture as well as allowing designers to use their services and teaching individuals how to design and print their own projects through a series of workshops.
