Conifera is a lightweight architectural installation consisting of 700 eco-sustainable bio-plastic modules, manufactured using 3D printing. It was conceived by the French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani in collaboration with COS, on the occasion of Fuorisalone 2019 at Palazzo Isimbardi. We took care of the consultancy in the design of the modules and their manufacture in coordination with the Wasp-Hubs of Venice, Macerata and London.

Each module has been designed and printed in such a way as to create a grid that optimizes the characteristics of the materials and allows light to spread throughout the structure. Conifera is a journey between architecture and nature: it shows how eco-sustainable materials are able to create the buildings of the future, when combined with a parametric design and processed with 3D printing. The installation integrates design and planning, creating a direct connection between creative process and technology.

The architecture is built with 3D printed bricks in bio-plastic made of vinegar, glycerine and corn alternating with modules produced with coniferous tree wood. Everything is designed in a sustainable way and with minimum waste, using as little material as possible: even the joints are in bio-plastic.
