Fashion brand COS has teamed up with French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani to present a large-scale 3D printed architectural installation made from renewable bioplastic bricks at this year's Milan design week.
Situated in Milan’s 16th century Palazzo Isimbardi, the geometry of Conifera is inspired by the motif of the Palace, through the courtyard to the tiles. The 30-metre-long installation, Conifera was created from 700 interlocking modular bio-bricks, 3D printed in a mix of wood and polylactic acid (PLA). Each bio-brick is printed in the form of interlocking structural lattices, optimizing material use and allowing light to permeate the structure as visitors travel through the installation. They are then secured together using PLA cable ties. Mamou-Mani has teamed up with the Italian company WASP to create all of bioplastic modules over a period of two months using four Delta WASP 3MT Industrial 3D printers, with each print taking between four and a half to seven hours.

The installation features three colours. The translucent elements are PLA in its purest form, while the white sections contain a pigment, and the brown hues are achieved from adding wood pulp to...
