Aectual, a furniture and finishes manufacturing platform utilizing large-formate 3D printing of recycled waste materials, has launched its ‘3D Printed Wood’. Derived from wood-waste residue, the material blends natural ingredients including lignin and cellulose – mirroring the composition, color, and scent of wood. Its mechanical and physical properties make it well-suited for high-quality 3D printing. The material stores CO2, is fully biodegradable, and can be re-printed after use.

The first objects in the Wood Series are Aectual’s screen designs – the Curve, Nazka, and Mesh systems. Each system has its own unique customization features, enabling designers to create a bespoke look. The collection also debuts the innovative ‘Stripe Ava’ screen design system – drawing inspiration from mid-century brise soleil patterns. This system offers designers the freedom to compose their unique pattern – playing with horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines.

Versatility is key with these wooden screens, which can serve as wall paneling, room dividers, or window blinds. Their adaptability makes them a good fit for office spaces, providing privacy screens or elegant dividers for open-plan layouts. Digitally tailored to exact specifications, they boast a maximum dimension of 1m x 2m.

The Wood Series seamlessly aligns with biophilic design principles. Its core attribute lies in its sustainability, as it stores CO2 within its material and is fully biodegradable. Derived from wood residue, the lignin- and cellulose-based material is reinforced with vegetable fibers such as flax or hemp for enhanced durability. Post-use, the products are reclaimed, shredded, and reprinted – ensuring a fully circular lifecycle.

All products come in three colors: Birch, Ash, and Oak. The specific nature of the wooden material combined with the visible 3D printed lines give the screens an extra level of depth and tactility. With the expansion of its material portfolio with 3D Printed Wood, Aectual is expecting to introduce a growing selection of its product range using this material.
