UAU project is a studio founded by Justyna Fałdzińska and Miłosz Dąbrowski in Warsaw. The multidisciplinary design studio’s current interest is exploring and experimenting with consumer-oriented 3D printing for use in home production.
“It’s the future of sustainable, eco-friendly manufacturing. We want to show that 3D printing is the best way to make good design accessible”, say the founders. “We develop our products with passion and commitment, with only the best quality materials. Our environment is of utmost importance to us, so most of the materials we use are either biodegradable or highly recyclable”.
Collections are prepared to be easily manufactured locally by the end customer or by their partners in the customers country. Products are designed in Poland, but instantly they are available everywhere in the world to be 3D-printed to order. Without the typical supply chain and storage demand, their carbon footprint and costs are significantly reduced. AS UAU project’s production process is digital, designs can be customised to fit every space, and personalised to customers need.
Products are designed and printed using 100% biodegradable PLA filaments which are made from renewable resources. Using additive technology in the manufacturing process allows for zero waste production.
Concepts invite users to interact with products, with the designs being made from multiple components so they can build an endless number of assemblies. Products shapes are simple, easy to assemble and lightweight. Personalisation is key with designs being adaptable and embracing modern colour palettes for minimalistic spaces.
Collections are available to purchase in three different ways: digital file to manufacture by the end customer, manufactured locally by their partners all around the world, or printed by UAUPROJECT.
