First ever 3D printed coffee station made from waste

By upgrading residual waste from Swedish coffee producer Löfbergs, Sculptur has managed to design and print a coffee station that at the same time looks great and smells like coffee!

The collaboration is part of the Circular Coffee Community and the pursuit of the group’s ambition of zero coffee waste by 2030. The World’s first 3D printed waste-based coffee station is already in operation and more are underway.
 
“Our goal is to make all activities related to growing, processing, and consuming coffee 100 percent circular, eliminating all waste throughout our supply chain by 2030,” Lars Aaen Thøgersen explains. He is the company’s recently appointed Chief Innovation and Circular Transformation Officer.
 
The robot needs only eight hours to complete all five parts making up a coffee station. 
 
“Using silver skin, which is a bi-product from the coffee roasting process and polypropene we have been able to create a durable material and a cool design for the coffee stations. Further development will allow us to use polypropene from recycled coffee big bags making the coffee stations close to 100 percent circular,” Glenn Mattsing, CEO of Sculptur, explains. 
 
When the coffee bar reaches the end of its lifetime it goes into a shredder and can be reprinted as a piece of furniture or a redesigned bar.
The coffee waste project is the first of several aiming to turn residual waste into useful raw materials. The first circular coffee station is already set up at the Lilla ICA Lindvallen supermarket in Sälen, Sweden.
 

Sculptur creates a new company

Our first product, the REFORM Chair, has found a new home at Reform Design Lab.

To show what the technology, new thinking, and the Sculptur-team were capable of, we started off with some new and revolutionized ideas in the furniture industry. The response was good. We developed more furniture, different materials, and now this first piece of furniture has become a new company: Reform Design Lab.

Good luck!

Sculptur starts printing face shields

At the same time, the robot printer was ready for production, the Corona pandemic strike. Sculptur had to find a new way to run the business when all orders suddenly was halted. That´s when they developed a way to print face shields for Swedish hospitals. 

Together with robot developer Spectrum Technology they went from idea to production within a few days. After two weeks they produced as many as 1000 face shields a day.
