Ecoalf, a sustainable Spanish fashion label, has teamed up with Nagami design studio, a company that uses 3D printing technology to fabricate large-scale products, to create a new installation that represents the melting of Earth’s poles, for their new store in Las Rozas Village, Madrid.

According to Nagami, hundreds of tonnes of plastic are produced daily, and the long-lasting nature of the material only further pollutes our planet. Following Ecoalf’s values of innovation, design, and sustainability, the interior is completely printed from 100% recycled plastic using some of the latest 3D technology to replicate a melting glacier.

The walls, shelves, and display tables of the store are made from recycled plastic – giving a second life to a total of 3.3 tonnes of plastic. All the elements have been produced in Spain to reduce CO2 emissions, and the entire space is recyclable at the end of its lifecycle. The installation wraps around the 90m² space and will be used to display Ecoalf’s garments, accessories, and footwear – all of which are made from recycled and low-impact materials.

“We love to collaborate with those who share our values and vision, and NAGAMI is at the forefront of sustainable architecture. This project brings together design and technology to raise awareness about climate change and inspire a real change,” said Javier Goyeneche, Founder and President of Ecoalf.

“We urgently need to rethink the way we produce and consume to provoke a real change in the industry. Today, 3D printing allows us to bring to life spaces that before were unimaginable, produced locally not only by using recycled materials, but establishing production chains that are cleaners, more sustainable, and flexible. And this is already a reality,” said Manuel Jiménez García, Co-Founder and CEO of Nagami.

Over the past 50 years, temperatures have reportedly increased across the Antarctic peninsula at five times faster than the average speed of the rest of the planet, and 75% of all areas covered by glaciers have melted due to these rising temperatures.
