3D Elements of Nature was born from the idea to "bring nature" in our cities. It is a modular system whose structure is inspired by the rocks on which the plants grow. It allows to obtain green walls and modular furniture, with different combinations. The base modules are two rhombohedrons, connected by a magnetic system and which may be empty, for containing the plants or full. The project is part of sustainable design, so the materials used are recycled or recyclable, the final prototype was produced by printing the single elements with a 3D printer and a PLA filament, made from corn starch.
Sara Vignoli completed her Master’s Degree in Architecture at Alghero.She attended an International II Level Post Master Course “Urban Research Lab Sardegna-Environmental design” concerning environmental design and sustainable architecture at DIA-Bauhaus in Dessau (Germany), after that she did an internship in Berlin. 3D Elements of Nature comes as part of a research grant of Sardegna Ricerche about Digital Fabrication. The project was selected as one of the three finalists of the competition "Artigenio" organized by Mercedes-Benz Van and Confartigianato.
