Digtal Furniture Brand
A O T O M O
Just like the brand name which is derived from the two words "about tomorrow", AOTOMO is all about the future: future manufacturing process, future material sources and future users, these are the things this brand truly cares about.
We use recycled plastic for all our products, and give disposed plastic a second life through digital fabrication technology. Usually, plastic wastes either end up in the landfill, or get recycled and turned into low-value single-use products, which is the No.1 source of plastic pollution. AOTOMO sees the problem and tries to extend the life-span of recycled plastic products by turning them into high-value designer pieces using 3D-printing technology.
The chair "Artist" is AOTOMO's first digital fabricated furniture product, it is printed entirely by the large scale 3D-printer originally designed and developed in-house for the particular case.
DIY large-scale 3D printer
The extruder is specifically designed to print thick layers so that printing efficiency is improved dramatically.
The 3D printer is designed and assembled from scratch.
The design of all the mechanical parts have gone through several test versions.
Countless tests of materials and adjustments of settings were performed in order to achieve desirable result.
