Medaarch launches Mediterranea: using 3D printing and bioplastics

Italian design firm Medaarch used 3D printing technology and bioplastics to create a range of sustainable furniture pieces. The company, founded by designer and innovator Amleto Picerno Ceraso, is dedicated to merging digital technologies with a humanistic approach to design. 'The conceptual mix between craftsmanship and new technologies, tradition and innovation, European and Mediterranean cultures has been our guide throughout the entire design inspiration process', the company mentions on their website.

Their company, based on the Amalfi Coast, focuses on ethical and sustainable design practices, combining digital technologies with a human touch to produce tailor-made, ecologically friendly products.

Medaarch introduced a new product line called Mediterranea. The products are 3D-printed and made of eco-sustainable PLA-material with the addition of natural dye. PLA is a bioplastic derived from the transformation of sugars present in corn. It's a renewable and non-petroleum-derived material, it’s biodegradable and compostable.

'Our furnishings and accessories are designed, on one hand, to have no negative impact on the environment and, on the other, to meet the needs of modern life by making unique spaces and enhancing the experience of anyone who lives in them.'
