World’s First 3D-Printed Film Studio Integrates Smart LED Lighting Technologies
3D printing mimics the manual manufacturing process and makes use of digital models to design customized three-dimensional objects by using an additive manufacturing process. This technology allows architects to discover new shapes and structures, as well as materials, and opens new possibilities for creative thinking. 3D printing is increasing its capabilities and is incorporating other technologies to create brand-new typologies. Philipp Aduatz’s work is a combination of 3D-printed structures that are textured with LED lighting. This creates a whole new dimension of complexity and creates the first film studio printed in 3D anywhere in the world.
The 3D printing process combines both manual and automated techniques to build an impressive concrete wall with an innovative mortar that is made of white cement. The wall is comprised of ten sections. Each segment is made out of six pieces which were then stacked. The wavy segments are put together easily with a hand. They are screwed into every horizontal plan by hand to make the wall easily disassembled at any time in the future.
3D Printing and LED Light
Philipp Aduatz wanted to find an innovative method of interior design. He incorporated 3D printing and LED lighting. The concrete wall is 630cm wide with a depth of 330 cm and is 300cm tall. It is further enhanced by the main lighting system made up of 14 LED stripes which are horizontally placed into prefabricated joints. The lights are controlled by the RGB color space and can switch between different shades or gradients.
A Green Alternative
3D printing is a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional concrete construction techniques that consume a lot of resources. This method of creating interior spaces is a minimal amount of formwork and only the most essential materials are utilized. Additionally, it minimizes the amount of waste that is generated to the minimal amount. The design of the film studio doesn’t require any reinforcements. This makes it easier to do any subsequent recycling.
Casinos Austria and Austrian Lotteries Group were looking to design an original interior design. They hired Philipp Aduatz to design the strategy and create the first 3D-printed film studio. The project was developed by Dominik Freynschlag the set designer and incremental3d the 3D concrete printing company.
This article is part of ArchDaily Topics Light in Architecture. It was proudly presented by Vitrocsa the first minimalist windows that Vitrocsa has been designing since 1992.
Vitrocsa developed the first window systems that were minimalist in design. This exclusive collection of options was created to be frameless and has the smallest sightline barriers.

The lighting technology can be seamlessly blended into the wall design through the use of LED stripes with the same width and layers. The entire array of LED elements can be linked to the lighting system of the studio using computer-aided control, making the best use of the technology’s advantages. The project is not just capable of exploring new design possibilities however, it also permits the use of technology in a method that creates the possibilities of new ideas and provides a unique setting.
