Comments Off on Get your hands on the world’s first 3D printed phone accessories made from wood

To coincide with the release of the new Fairphone 2, the environmentally-conscious smartphone , artist Alan Nguyen teamed up with 3D Hubs to create world’s first 3D printed phone accessories that are made from wood. All designs can be downloaded and 3D printed, and thanks to this locality and the material used, the process is as sustainable as can be. Right now, a Fairphone 2 Nightstand and the Fairphone 2 Amplifier is avaiable. The Nightstand was inspired by the simplicity of the Fairphone 2’s clean aesthetic and the Amplifier was inspired by conch shells due to their naturally acoustic structure. “What I really liked about this project was the ability to make use of a distributed manufacturing project helping to lead a ‘new way’ for products to get made. Not only are we helping minimize waste and help the environment, but we’re also helping lay the foundation for the future of local manufacturing,” said Nguyen + 3D Hubs Fairphone Accessories The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
