AURORA

AURORA

AURORA takes the form of a series of waves, or modules, manufactured locally at Mamou-Mani’s FabPub in London with 3D printing in bio-sourced PLA, and suspended in the air using steel tubes. It’s the third instalment from Dassault Systèmes’ Design in the Age of Experience initiative, developed within its own cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and forms part of the Design Museum’s “Waste Age: What can design do?” exhibition, exploring design’s role in
sustainability.

Comparing the #carbonfootprint of our #Aurora installation in #bioplastic vs #petroplastic:

AURORA IN PLA: 2333.89kgCO2
AURORA IN ABS: 8890.42kgCO2

That’s 6 tonnes of #carbon saved, the equivalent of building 10 electric bikes.
