Model No. is an exciting new company launched in the summer of 2019! Started by a group of designers and small business owners, we launched our first line of the world’s first fully customizable 3D-printed furniture (sustainably made from plants!) in the summer of 2019. The original introductory line of tables, chairs and home décor accessories marries 3D-printed sculptural base forms with hand-finished hardwood, is designed to be modified in real time and is made of plant-based bioresins and sustainably sourced hardwoods.
Materials & Ingredients
All product designs are made of carefully selected eco-friendly and sustainable materials using manufacturing processes designed to minimize waste. The 3D-printed elements are made of PLA bioresin, an infinitely recyclable and compostable bioplastic derived from post agricultural waste. The hardwood surfaces are sustainably harvested and certified by our local California distributors.
Packaging & Delivery
Our products are designed to be accessible, sustainable, and above all, gorgeous. With those goals in mind, we have developed our own end-to-end manufacturing process to using software, digital fabrication, and meticulous hand finishing. Our products are produced in a way to reduce waste and yet enable forms that have never been seen before.
Our packaging is of the same mind set. Minimal yet beautiful. We use all un-dyed papers and cardboards to wrap and ship your product. Our boxes are filled with biodegradable packing peanuts and sealed with paper craft tape.
Quality & Value
Our PLA bioresin is durable and strong. Though it is a bioresin, (a resin/plastic like material that is not petroleum based, but instead made of organic materials) it will not biodegrade in yours or your children’s lifetime under normal conditions. Designed to exceed commercial standards for furniture design, our products can not only take an excessive amount of weight and general abuse applied to them, they are also easy to clean and maintain with simple practices you already do in your house or office.
Because of our unique create-on-demand business model, we are able to significantly lower the carbon footprint of the furniture we sell compared to traditional furniture.
Local Supply Chains
As much as possible we purchase our materials from our immediate local area. At minimum everything we purchase is American made.
Goals & Aspirations
In the near future we hope to become a carbon negative company!
