Design for 2050: Clothing printer, no waste

Design for 2050: Clothing printer, no waste | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

This is some really clever design thinking for a rapidly urbanising world.

 

It considers all of the space issues that arise from clothing (closets, washing machines, dryers) as well as the waste and logistics issues from the whole clothing industry, and replaces it with a printer.

 

The printer prints out your clothes according to designs you can download using thread cartridges you buy, and then breaks them back down into thread for future reuse.

 

It is a really neat idea for massively disrupting how we think about clothing.

A bin is provided to an apartment building for use collecting clothing. They also do collections at greenmarkets in partnership with GrowNYC and run clothing drive with schools and nonprofits.
