Queen Maxima was at the bridge's opening ceremony. The bridge connects the city canal banks in Amsterdam.
Several organisations have been involved in developing the project simultaneously, including the Joris Laarman Labs, ABB, Air Liquide, ArcelorMittal, Autodesk, AMS Institute, and Lenovo. From the outset, they wanted to build the bridge directly on the site. However, later they decided to abandon the idea.
The stainless-steel structure was originally 3D printed in 2018. It took approximately six months to achieve, but then the bridge was delayed for various reasons. Finally, in 2021, MX3D became involved in the installation. The 12.2 by 6.3-meter bridge weighs 6 tonnes, and its technical condition is monitored by built-in sensors.
