3D printed concrete furniture: a growing innovation

8 February 2024

Increasingly popular, 3D concrete printing is carving out a place for itself in many sectors. These include construction, interior design, landscaping and many others. 

This innovative fabrication technology represents a considerable advance in design and manufacturing processes. 3D printing opens the way to the creation of new elements, tailor-made for the project in hand. We can help you turn your projects, from ideas to realities.

Let’s find out how the 3D printing industry is reshaping the manufacture of street furniture. Did you know that this method has the potential to help design nonstructural building elements? It’s a process that offers many advantages, both aesthetic and functional.

Unlimited Custom Properties

Thanks to 3D concrete printing, it is now possible to design and manufacture customized concrete street furniture. Whether benches, tables, planters or sculptures, this technology makes it possible to create complex shapes and patterns. These adapt perfectly to the specific needs of each project. 

Designers and architects can give free rein to their creativity and create unique pieces that become true functional works of art. Our bespoke design service offers a different solution to our usual range. Would you be interested in a distinct, though equally resilient, design for a planter? Why not follow our customer’s lead and enhance the aesthetics of his space with this magnificent planter?

Durability and Strength 

3D printed concrete offers excellent durability, making it an ideal material for street furniture. Elements made from 3D concrete can withstand extreme environmental conditions. These include weathering, temperature variations and mechanical stress. 

You can reinforce 3D-printed concrete elements to increase their strength and tensile strength. This reinforcement technology ensures an impressive lifespan for urban installations, while maintaining an attractive visual appearance. 

Did you know that we can design certain products to act as an anti-ram? Our expertise enables us to design parts that keep pedestrians and buildings safe from potential hazards. 

Design Flexibility and Rapid Production

3D concrete printing offers great design flexibility. We can produce complex organic shapes, textures and patterns that would be difficult to achieve using traditional manufacturing methods. 

The technology enables fast, efficient production of customized concrete parts, reducing manufacturing and installation times.

The Use of 3D Printing in Construction

As you are undoubtedly aware, we can print street furniture. However, it’s also possible to produce the so-called non-structural elements needed to construct buildings. Aluminum or steel products will eventually rust, warp or require replacement. In light of this, why not opt for concrete as the preferred option?

When tasked with the creation of custom coping stones, Jansen Industrie stepped up to the challenge. A product with a unique cachet and incredible durability.

The use of 3D concrete printing in the manufacturing process can also have a positive environmental impact. By optimizing the quantity of materials used and avoiding production waste, this technology helps reduce waste and carbon footprints. What’s more, concrete is recyclable, enabling for a more sustainable use of natural resources.

 

The use of 3D printing in the design of your concrete projects addresses the problems encountered with traditional manufacturing methods. It also makes it possible to develop products that are not yet on the market, or that are not sustainable. 

This innovation offers aesthetic and functional solutions that enrich your urban environment! We encourage you to contact our team to discuss your project and bring it to life!
