Lowpoly creating furniture based on coffee grounds.

Share:

In the heart of Barcelona, within the historic Casa Calvet designed by Antoni Gaudí, D·Origen Coffee Shop introduces the world’s first coffee shop incorporating 3D-printed elements made from coffee grounds. This innovative space, designed by Gianluca Pugliese of LOWPOLY, uses the pioneering LOWIMPACT® material, a blend of recycled PLA and coffee grounds. The project exemplifies the sustainable reuse of coffee waste, transforming it into functional design elements.
The coffee shop features custom furniture including counters, lamps, and stools, crafted to blend seamlessly with the historic architecture. The counters, a focal point of the design, are made from LOWIMPACT® material, showcasing the unique amber textures that, when backlit, create captivating light effects. This material, containing 98% organic content, is biodegradable and petroleum-free, combining recycled coffee grounds with various polymers for different color tones and textures.Production utilized advanced 3D printing techniques with large-format printers and modified Rev3rd extruders, capable of handling high-organic-content materials. Industrial robotic arms ensured precision in crafting the bespoke pieces, resulting in five unique elements that define the coffee shop’s aesthetic.The use of recycled coffee grounds in design addresses significant environmental issues, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional materials. This project highlights the potential for innovative materials in design and construction, setting a new standard for sustainability in the specialty coffee industry.
