Plastic people

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

Creating one degree of separation between our plastic waste and its recycling, Dutch design studio The New Raw has launched ‘Print Your City’. Developed by founders Panos Sakkas and Fonteini Setaki with funding from Coca-Cola, Zero Waste Lab has launched in Thessaloniki, Greece. Locals bring plastic waste and help design custom urban furniture – and get actively involved in the process. Built by robotic-armed 3D printer, public seating can incorporate a bike rack, tree pot (pictured), dog-feeding bowl or bookcase- all based on the ergonomics of the human body.
