Dutch designer Dirk van der Kooij is set to reveal a new line of “Endless” furniture made from recycled e-waste. The Endless robot uses ground-up plastic from old refrigerators and squashes it in an incessant thread, layer by layer, to form pieces of furniture. This kind of low-resolution 3D printing can produce a chair in just 3 hours. The technology also allows the designer to change a model after a piece of furniture is produced, a bonus that the traditional injection molding process doesn’t offer. The machine can be programmed to build furniture of any shape and size. “The Future in the Making” is a display presented by Domus and Audi at the Palazzo Clerici in Milan during the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair, from April 17-22. The event looks at the future of design and has invited a new generation of creative designers to exhibit their work. Other designs in the exhibition include Markus Kayser‘s Solar Sinter , a numerical control machine designed to construct objects using only solar power and sand as a raw material.
