Beautiful 3D Printed Bookmark of a Dove

Netherlands-based design firm Studio Macura just emailed us to tell us about a product they just launched that’s as beautiful as it is useful. Pero is a functional and decorative 3D printed bookmark in the form of a dove. Poetically perched, the bird has long strings that hold in place where in the book you last left off. The sculptural doves are designed in three different positions – standing, pecking and flying – and come in four colors – red, blue, black and white.

If you’re wondering how much the polyamide sculptures weigh, the studio tells us that the “weight is minimal, plus or minus 10 grams depending on the shape of the bird.”

In the United States, you can find them at the following four locations – Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth Texas, Lumianire in Chicago and Luminaire in Miami. Want!
