Knotty for The New Raw

2023
The New Raw
Making
3D Printing

As a Fabrication Assistant I worked on the production of the pieces for Stratum. I was involved in the design of the technical aspects of the project and the crafting of the objects.

“Knotty” — a collection of playful benches with a bold and tactile texture.

Inspired by knitting techniques, the project treats plastic waste as a continuous thread of material which folds, twists and loops to create an intriguing tactile surface that resembles textiles, and invites users to touch it.

The sculpted material texture, consisting of thick and seemingly soft knots, creates a tactile, permeable and load-bearing type of surface for outdoor and indoor furniture or other architectural applications. “Knitted patterns” that increase functionality by allowing water drainage and avoiding internal structures, can be upscaled and become ornaments and building units that embody a new digitally crafted materiality.





The New Raw is a research and design studio based in
Rotterdam (Netherlands) founded in 2015 by architects Panos Sakkas and Foteini Setaki with the ambition to give new life to discarded materials through design, robots and craftsmanship.

The New Raw develops its own (digital) craftsmanship techniques through a formal and technical language that highlights the texture and the layer-by-layer character of its in-house robotic manufacturing process. The exploration of the possibilities that the robotic techniques provide transform plastic waste into beautiful and meaningful products that are 100% circular.





Open for collaborations

As an Industrial Designer, a Maker or a 3D printing expert; I am open for new and exciting projects.
