Studio Eric Klarenbeek was the first to succeed in 3D printing with live mycelium fungi. They are now developing other organic materials for the 3D printer. Not only do Dros and Klarenbeek believe that 3D-printing fosters the use of organic materials, they also believe it promotes local production.
Accordingly, they want to set up ‘3D-bakery’. This is a platform and a website, where one can order a design for a product and have it printed in a 3D-bakery nearby. The products are made of local and bio-degradable materials.
They want to set up a platform, the ‘3D Bakery’, which would allow people in any given location to print out objects from local biological degradable materials. Currently Klarenbeek and Dros are developing new algae glass. This is a 3-D printed replica made from algae from the pond of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
