What recycled materials does Ekbacken Studios use?

How does the process behind Ekbacken's furniture work?

Fishing nets that no longer serve a purpose come directly from fishermen in a port city in Portugal. The fishing nets are washed and cleaned of debris, sorted by color, and then ground down. The small pieces are combined with stone minerals, which make the material stronger, and this becomes the raw material that eventually becomes a finished piece of furniture.

Friends Robin Teigland and Kristina Tjäder went on dog walks and talked about the fishing port where Robin liked to surf, which later developed into a design brand.

How are Ekbacken Studios' furniture pieces 3D-printed?

The furniture design is a digital file that is input into software where the computer instructs exactly how the robot arm should move within the machine. A G-code is printed that specifies coordinates and how much material should be extruded. This sketch then goes from the computer to a 3D printer that reads the G-code. The raw material then forms the product layer by layer, like icing from a piping bag.

Are Ekbacken Studios' furniture pieces unique?

Behind each product is a code that a 3D printer reads. This code needs to be adjusted a bit continuously. The furniture is also made from recycled materials, which means that the products can look slightly different. All of this together means that each piece of furniture is truly unique.
