Julia Koerner: Product Design

3D printing has reached a level of quality and complexity that the boundaries of what’s possible with the technology feel almost limitless. We can create entirely new shapes, geometries and materials that would be otherwise impossible to manufacture and in many industries, it’s helping to make processes more efficient and more sustainable. Julia Koerner is an innovator in the use of 3D printing in the fashion space and that’s why we took the time to sit down with her to better understand how these processes and her work are continuing to evolve.


Julia Koerner is an award-winning Austrian designer working at the convergence of architecture, product and fashion design. She is internationally recognised for her innovations in 3D-Printing as well as her work on the Hollywood blockbuster, Black Panther.


Severin Matusek is an editor, producer and strategist who has spent the last decade researching how technology transforms culture, communities and society.
