Dario Scapitta Design

Dario Scapitta is an Italian artist born in Valenza, a capital of the Italian jewelry business. He lives now in The Netherlands, where he started to work on new personal ideas and finally in 2012, the Dario Scapitta Design was born. As a very independent company, he is investing his energy and background knowledge creating his personal collections, trying to design different objects that people like to wear.

For him, jewelry design is not only diamonds and gold, but also different materials. For this reason, the 3d printing technology seems perfect for him, allowing him to experiment with different materials, playing with colours and shapes always focused on the sense of beauty.

He is constantly inspired by nature, fashion, arts, architecture and everything surrounds him. In June 2011 his STONE necklace won the second place on the “3D printed jewelry contest” by i.Materialise. In “The Hats off to 3D Printing Design Challenge”, another i.Materialise contest, his BUTTERFLY hat was selected as runner-up and showed for the first time in the beautiful fashion show during the “Materialise World Conference” in Leuven (Belgium).

All his collections are realised in polyamide (sintered nylon) using 3d print technology, a flexible and strong material. He is also working using other materials like silver which his PEPITA collection is an example. These pieces are 3d printed in wax and then produced through the lost wax casting procedure. He is now working on new designs and projects where he would like to mix different materials together like stainless steel or silver and polyamide.
