For the sixth consecutive year that there is the Netherlands (NL Tech) Pavilions at CES – the Consumer Electronics Show that is annually organized by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), Aectual created an XL 3D printed art display that helped visualize the main solutions that were showcased during the event. These solutions help address global challenges across a wide berth of tech categories, including sustainability and resilience, AI, robotics and quantum computing, health and wellness, smart cities and smart homes, smart mobility and vehicle tech, data security and big data.
Interestingly, the architecture firm 3D printed screens from recycled bioplastic and that can be recycled and reprinted again into new products in the future. This year, the Dutch CES theme was “Tech for a Responsible Future”.
The 3D printed screens help to visualize topics including clean energy, data security and climate change. The Netherlands continues to use innovation to combat climate change and sea level rise, as such water is a key theme in the design, as is the blue of the European Union flag. Additionally, the Dutch-American relationship is portrayed by a traditional Dutch Canal House that meets the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge.
Made from 100% circular, sustainable materials in the form of plant-based bioplastic, the material for the room dividers was previously used for the seating area of the temporary convention center that was built in Amsterdam during the EU presidency of the Netherlands in 2016. After use, the bioplastic was shredded and reprinted into several new items such as the room dividers. Following CES, the room dividers will be used at the Consulate General of the Netherlands in San Francisco and can ultimately be reprinted into new architectural solutions.
