3D-Printed chair in biocomposite
Malin Fleen’s chair is an example of how a by-product can receive an extended service life through shape-shifting using technology and innovation.Read more
Pelle Stafshede decided to move away from traditional development methods and turn his attention to additive production using biocomposite instead.
Identifying new methods for developing their products and concepts was something that the founder of Melker of Sweden, Pelle Stafshede, adopted when he decided to move away from traditional development methods and turn his attention to additive production using biocomposite instead.
I wanted to find a way in which we could use new materials and production methods to develop really stylish and, if necessary, customised outdoor products in a more sustainable and climate-smart manner
Our goals are strongly linked to the UN's sustainability goals. This case is linked to climate-smart products and services and sustainability goal # 13: Stop climate change.Read about Moelven's sustainability goals
Supporting innovation and identifying new ways to utilise by-products are two areas that Moelven is more than happy to contribute towards. The Wood Region is a project that makes this possible.
The Wood Region is part of the Bioinno project, which aims to promote entrepreneurship within the forestry bioeconomy in Värmland and Dalarna. The testing and development facilities in Sysselbäck are a key resource for Bioinno. Innovators can use the test environment to produce large-scale prototypes using biocomposite 3D-printers.
