The first boutique entirely 3D printed in concrete.

The flower boutique is entirely and sustainably printed by the highest resolution concrete powder bed printer available today. All the structural and non-structural parts of the boutique are single production and bespoke design pieces, specifically conceived for the boutique.

Sustainably printed with recycled glass as base material, the boutique features 3D printed concrete furniture, decoration, exhibition stands, cabinets and desks. All single parts are printed in one piece, providing structural stability and a continuous, smooth surface. Parts of the 3D printed interiors are color coated to create the desired ambience and lighten the room. The raw sensations and essentialism provided by the 3D printed concrete provide a stark yet complementary contrast to the colorful display of flower bouquets and stylish vases.

Just in time production enabled by the newly developed 3D concrete printing method sets new standards in the development of interiors and opens new horizons in the product- and interiordesign industry. Smart manufacturing and a sustainability driven design process shorten the production times, routes and costs, embodying one of the futureproof ways to create and reshape objects and interiors of everyday life.
