3-D PRINTING FOR BETTER DAYS

Studio Barbara Gollackner

28.9.–7.10.2018

I print the world the way I like it. In this case with ecologically sound and sustainable printing filaments. Because 3-D printing has revolutionized the world of product design. But regardless of how many benefits have come from the new technology of rapid prototyping, every prototype means another piece of (thermo) plastic in the world. Use of the alternative – biodegradable materials – still has a long way to go. With an urn made of spruce, an ice-cube tray of compostable WillowFlex, a flowerpot of seaweed, and toys of natural GreenTec, Barbara Gollackner explored the reasonable uses for the printing filaments and provided a thematic accompaniment to her cocktail with drinks and bites according to a concept by chef Bernadette Wörndl, author of “Von der Schale bis zum Kern.”
