Supporting innovation and identifying new ways to utilise by-products are two areas that Moelven is more than happy to contribute towards. The Wood Region is a project that makes this possible.
3D-printed chair in biocomposite
A lot may be done now with sawdust from Moelven Notnäs. A 3D-printed chair in biocomposite – true symbol of the future. Malin’s chair is 100 per cent recyclable and has attracted widespread attention from several quarters. “It became a chair that would show what is possible. I consider it the starting point for a new and more sustainable way to design and produce furniture.” Malin Fleen.
New opportunities and sustainability
Producing furniture using 3D technology not only gave Malin the opportunity to test new shapes – it also meant an opportunity to combine materials in a new way.
“It seemed unnecessary to replicate something that is already built traditionally. For me, it is about attempting to optimise the possibilities of the new technology. 3D technology also allows for softer shapes that can be difficult to achieve by hand. With this technology, I can also use less materials, as the combination of the materials together is so strong,” Malin says.
