Taking its name from the English word ‘wave’ and ‘reverie’ – the French for ‘dreaming’ – The Wavery is the new centrepiece installation at 3’6, on our 3rd floor at Piccadilly.
This project ‘addresses environmental issues through a relatable experience that speaks to our senses’, made using renewable and compostable materials, all of which are crafted locally.
From the stools to the signature waves that cascade up from the bar and across the ceiling, the team have used PLA bioplastics to create this stunning installation.
Made from fermented sugar that generates 80% less carbon than petroleum plastics, PLA bioplastic is also edible by enzymes: which means it can decompose back to the earth when it is placed in an industrial composter.
“We have designed and 3D printed multiple items in the bar in Fab.Pub, our circular factory in London, and these geometrical and functional elements were created using parametric design and digital fabrication,” says Arthur.
“We believe in waves of innovation through impactful storytelling; we also love the idea of taking you on a journey to a future in which our objects are designed globally but made locally, and where we make everything from renewable and circular materials.”
