3D printing is evolving rapidly. We love to be in the front, developing new designs, recycling processes, and manufacturing tools for the future. Like these radiator covers individually designed to fit the different windows of an old house. Challenge us!
Material: UPM Formi 3D
Design on demand
What to do when you can’t find the perfect terrace table on the market? Roger Berliat in Switzerland made a simple sketch for Sculptur and described what he wanted. In just a few days later, the table was printed! That is design on demand
New material from old Volvo and VW bumpers
Together with Volvo Cars, Volkswagen Group, and several entities in the automotive industry, Sculptur has managed to transform obsolete bumpers into design furniture using large-scale 3D technology!
A car consists of about 20% plastic. Every year, around 200,000 end-of-life cars are sent to a scrapyard in Sweden. In addition, approximately 600,000 cars are involved in accidents, which means that car parts must be replaced. All in all, a lot of plastic material from cars is only recycled through energy recovery, ie through incineration where the energy is recovered.
Each piece of furniture is provided with a QR code making it easy to tell the story, but also find information about how to recycle the 100% recyclable furniture.
Design: Rutger Design.
Design made easy
3D printing gives the world a new way of creating beauty. Design student Annie Hedlund from Oslo Met has created a beautiful standing table during her bachelor thesis at Sculptur. Her task was to come up with a design suitable for weak, recycled materials. The soft shapes make it stronger and by avoiding sharp edges Annie made it possible to use recycled materials that would have been incinerated.
Printing time: 4 h.
Material: Recycled polypropene
How to reform the furniture industry
Another order of the Reform chair completed! With additive manufacturing, you simply print what you have designed – without using any molds. If you are not satisfied, redesign your CAD and print again. The first product from Sculptur was the REFORM chair. This masterpiece was designed by Jurij Rahimkulov and catches the eye with its beautiful curves.
It became such a success that we decided to spin off a company dedicated to market the furniture collection:
Reform Design Lab
Nowadays we have come up with a simple way to color our base materials cheap and in pretty much any color.
Material: UPM FORMI + black pigment and natural colored Stora Enso Duransense.
And the winner is…
We love challenges. When leading technology company ABB ask us to create a price for their yearly announcement of best-performing partners, we came up with a 3D printed loving cup made of recyclable material. But, we don´t expect the price back for recycling. It´s too beautiful.
Material: Stora Enso Durasense
Go big, go circular
3D printing is growing as a technology, but also in size. Our biggest printer reaches three meters in height and two meters in width. It runs on rails making it possible to print objects several meters long.
This design wall is mobile and can be used both as an office wall and a voice absorber. When it´s used, we shred it and reprint it without losing material. And, we can make it smaller!
