3D Printed Playground
Isola Design District Headquarter
Via Gaetano de Castillia, 26
"3D Printed Playground" is a project by Caracol Studio that deals with the creation of a playground for children, whose components will be printed in 3D by a robotic arm during the entire duration of the Isola Design District.
"3D Printed Playground" is the installation of Caracol Studio to tell the story of their new collection of sustainable kids furniture made using robotic 3d printing technology. To realize the products, the robot sinuously follows a path that derives from a particular parametric design process. The materials used are also 100% recycled and recyclable and the use of the toys by children will be immediate.
The aim of the project is to propose and showcase a new form of highly innovative production that lays the foundations for new possibilities of design, co-design, eco-sustainable and socially useful personalization, also able to create products with new aesthetic-functional characteristics.
With this project we want to focus on three themes that we consider extremely important and contemporary as the beneficial contamination between the world of technology and design, aimed to push forward the frontiers of design; the social and ecological sustainability of a production (even in large dimensions) with additive manufacturing technology, and lastly, the importance of communicating and disseminating these concepts, to educate above all the youngest and the new generations, that will grow in a world always more permeated by the digital.
