We have previously covered Dutch designer Dirk Vander Kooij(29) who reprogramed an old industrial machine and transformed it to a real 3D printing robot.

Here is a nice video showing how amazing it is: The 3D printing robot squeezed the material out of a tube, layer by layer built the object up. Recycled materials are used as feedstock and the robot can create all kinds of furniture, including children's chairs, rocking chairs, and bar stools, or even small dining-room tables. This 3D printing robot has a capacity of producing 4,000 chairs a year.

 

The cost of 3D printed furniture is not cheap: this low rocking chair from "Endless Pulse" series costs 940 euro or US$1250. However the concept of recycling the fridges and creating this smart engineered process is just brilliant.
