Ecoalf builds its new store with 3.3 tonnes of recycled plastic and 3D printing

Ecoalf, a sustainable and recycled clothing brand, has recently inaugurated its new store made up of 3.3 tonnes of recycled plastic and 3D printing. The team has worked with Nagami design studio which brings 3D printing to large-scale products to create the new installation.

We love to collaborate with those who share our values and vision, and Nagami is at the forefront of sustainable architecture. This project brings together design and technology to raise awareness about climate change and inspire a real change,” Javier Goyeneche, Founder and President of Ecoalf.

Nagami has developed a plastic extruder that can be integrated in dedicated 3D printing robots to produce large-scale products. In this project, the 100% 3D printed recycled plastic replicates a melting glacier.

The walls, shelves, and display tables are made from recycled plastic, giving a second life to 3.3 tonnes of plastic. All the elements have been produced in Spain to reduce CO2 emissions and the entire space is recyclable at the end of its lifecycle. The installation wraps around the 90 m2 space and will be used to display Ecoalf’s top-quality garments, accessories, and footwear all made from recycled and low-impact materials.

We urgently need to rethink the way we produce and consume to provoke a real change in the industry. Today, 3D printing allows us to bring to life spaces that before were unimaginable, produced locally not only by using recycled materials, but establishing production chains that are cleaners, more sustainable and flexible, and this is already a reality”, Manuel Jiménez García, Co-Founder and CEO of Nagami comments.

Passionate about new technologies, I discovered 3D printing through different professional experiences. Aware of the importance of this technology for today's and tomorrow's markets, it is with great pleasure that I share the latest news and analysis related to it, so that you in turn, can take advantage of it. #Staytuned #3DAdept
