Second Nature / Recycled Plastic Furniture
In response to the alarming reality of plastic waste, BlueCycle launches Second Nature, its first series of furniture that showcases how digital design and fabrication technologies can be deployed to tackle marine plastic pollution.
Inspired by the sea environment, we have reimagined and redesign the life cycle of plastic items used in the fishing and shipping industry. With the use of large scale robotic 3D printing, all our products are digitally crafted from up-cycled marine plastic. Through the distribution of these items, we aspire to become a sustainable business paradigm that combines new models of manufacturing with recycling practices.
The material is collected from a wide network around Greece from environmental NGOs, fishermen and plastic manufacturers that recycle their plastic though us and large scale 3d printed in Bluecycle Lab.
