This project is dedicated to producing customized assemblable furniture out of unprocessed wood waste and 3D-printed joints. Wood waste is often to be found in the city streets, seashore or forgotten in the household’s attics and cellars. They appear in form of old broken furniture, debris, or woodwork leftovers. In Berlin, one can often see abandoned pallets, wooden transportation platforms, for example. Material-wise, such wooden structures as pallets have sufficient strength to be re-created into furniture. Using 3D-printing technology and taking a discarded pallet as an example material, this project explores a methodology to re-value wooden waste as module for new practically and aesthetically usable furniture.
