Collection of benches woven in 3D-printed concrete
Berlin-based designers Studio 7.5 collaborated with Parisian 3D printing experts XtreeE to create a series of continuously printed concrete benches with a woven pattern.
The three outdoor benches were printed using XtreeE's technology and equipment, which includes a six-axis 3D-printing robot that can print concrete and clay with extreme precision.
Studio 7.5 had worked with other 3D-printed materials on previous projects, but they had never worked with concrete – whereas XtreeE have worked extensively with the material.
The concrete is printing in alternate layers by the robot head, moving in an continuous oscillating wave and slowly building up the layers. This movement creates the woven pattern.
The bench is also much lighter than it could have been in solid concrete, and the pattern plays an important role in the aesthetic of the bench.
