Tell us about your practice.
doublehead digifacturing was launched in 2016 as an outgrowth of Jeffrey's interest in 3D printing. A consummate Latin student, Jeffrey even felt the need to distinguish the new techniques of completely digital manufacturing processes from the past by coining the term 'digifacturing.' doublehead focuses on homegoods, primarily a range of planters, with the specification that all of the company's offerings cannot be manufactured by traditional means. Using the cutting-edge technology of 3D printing allows doublehead to produce objects of unusual style and utility, such as single-piece planters with built-in watering lines.

Tell us something about the products you have chosen for the market.
The planters offered here are both visually striking and highly practical. They all incorporate some form of the 'bottom-watering' design perfected by the company, wherein the caretaker may use the lower tray to water plants using the capillary action of the dirt. Doing so regularly encourages a significantly healthier root structure than traditional planters, which are watered from above. The planters with a dedicated watering funnel work on the same principle. with spouts that insert into the soil about 2/3rds of the way down the dirt volume; you can view and test their efficacy before putting dirt in. The 'Snowman' line of planters is doublehead's newest offering, designed exclusively for the DoH Winter Market 2020!
Part of doublehead digifacturing's core principles is the believe in sustainable design. All of our products are designed to be printed with nearly zero waste, an enormous advantage of additive manufacturing. In addition, we always print our products using PLA, a type of non-toxic, fully-renewable plastic made from cornstarch. Using a sustained composting reaction at high temperatures, our planters can even be turned back into dirt!
If 2020 was a food...
2020 is organ meat, prompting contemplation and re-evaluation of one's assumptions.
