The project “eGambiarra“ is dedicated to producing customized assemblable furniture out of unprocessed solid waste and 3D-printed joints. “Gambiarra” (from Portuguese) is a term to describe a quick solution or workaround which may look clumsy but proves to be very effective, considering the resources spent. Accordingly, the present project offers a quick and flexible way of connecting randomly-shaped solid waste materials into durable and usable furniture. It confluences the novelties of 3D scanning, CAD modeling and proposes possible forms and materials of joints to connect the solid waste parts into new furniture.
