Philippe Malouin's Connection line of tabletop objects for design brand Othr is a wonderful example of the beauty that can be created by 3-D printing when it is not being used strictly to create industrial objects.  The Connection Vessel is made of 3-D printed steel and consists of a large bowl supported by a thin handle.  The origin of the piece is clearly evident and no effort has been made to conceal the striations that are created during the printing process.  A porcelain version (not pictured) is also available.
