4.4 3D Printed Furniture

  • Print Your City project establish in collaborations with drinks brand Coca Cola and started in Thessaloniki, Greece
  • It offers residents a recycling facility for their plastic waste and options to choose what the waste is turned into, with a robotic 3D-printing arm that can transform the single plastic into street furniture.
  • Options are included for each object like a planter, a bike rack, a feeding bowl for dogs and a bookcase etc.
  • Once the design is chosen, the website tells the user would need much-recycled plastic to make the object. 
  • This initiative primarily made the furniture from PP and PE plastics commonly used in food packaging.
  • They have recycled more than 800 kilos of plastic waste for the production of the table. 
  • This project aims to engage citizens of cities worldwide more directly with the recycling process by turning the waste into objects that can be used by the public and giving them some control over what those objects are and where they might be placed.
