Sand - The new design material

Sand - The new design material

Sand is a natural material that has very distinctive characteristics when used in different environments. It can be harsh and raw, but also warm and comforting. With this variation, it is no surprise that almost everybody has a personal connection to this unique material. This could be early childhood memories in the sandbox, vacations at the beach or simply using this material in a professional environment like constructions.

We use these common associations that people have with sand to let them engage with our products. In this process, the common perception that people have with sand changes while confronting them with an unprecedented form that sand can take. A harsh but loose material that can be shaped into any form!

Sand is the new design material that enables creative people and companies to explore new possibilities in very different ways. However, it is important to understand and respect the natural heritage of sand in order to use it in the most efficient and beautiful way.

In our process, we use natural quartz sand, which is the most common type of sand available. It is sourced from local suppliers in Bavaria, which allows us a more sustainable focus. We have to ensure that every grain has the same size. This is very important for our 3D printing technology and ensures the highest quality of our products.
