Objet to Sponsor Prestigious 'Multiversités Créatives' Exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris

Private VIP Media Tour Focusing on Convergence of Art and Technology Features Artist Neri Oxman

Friday, May 4th, 2012; 8:30-11am, Restaurant Georges 6th floor, Centre Pompidou, Paris

Objet Ltd [http://www.objet.com ]., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, is to be an official sponsor of the 'Multiversites Creatives' exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, Paris, starting May 2nd 2012. The exhibition features pieces from Neri Oxman, Artist, Architect, Designer and Assistant Professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, whose work has been created using Objet multi-material 3D printing - a capability unique to Objet Connex technology.

The Centre Pompidou is one of the most visited attractions in France with some 3 million visitors every year. This year's Multiversites Creatives exhibition (May 2nd - August 6th) focuses on the future of industry and deals with new creative tools. Visitors will be drawn by 15 different projects created by a new generation of young designers exploring the intersection of technology and art.

"The sponsorship of this exhibition is momentous for our business as a broader awareness of 3D printing technology is key to the industry's future rapid growth," states David Reis, Objet CEO. "The 3D printing industry has the potential to invigorate how we think about product design, art and engineering. The process enables artists, designers and engineers to rapidly create whole assemblies, unique artistic geometries and functional prototypes straight from a 3D design."

Objet is inviting the media to attend its Private VIP Media Event on Friday 4th May, which includes a guided tour of the 'Multiversites Creatives' exhibition, accompanied by Neri Oxman. Taking place from 8.30-11.00am at the Centre Pompidou, the event starts with a VIP breakfast buffet in the Restaurant Georges on the 6th floor, with panoramic views of the Paris skyline. The Objet Media Event is by free invitation only; as number of participants is limited, to get your personal invitation early registration is required*:
