On the outskirts of Lisbon, Portugal in Santa Iria de Azoia, sustainable artistic studio WOOMETRY is giving unwelcome wood parts a 2nd existence by reworking the salvaged supplies into home goods and other 3D objects. Started in March 2018 by architect Kate Bombony and woodworker Mike Beck, the structure studio has not too long ago developed to involve a 3rd workforce member and adopted partial automation of the creation procedures to let far more target on the studio’s mission of sustainability.

Open to visits from attendees, the WOOMETRY imaginative studio operates out of the former MEC factory, an industrial appliance producing plant. The most important emphasis of the three-human being imaginative design and style studio is the generation of ornamental panels and surfaces from recycled wooden. The modular panels are based on an isometric grid the modules can be set alongside one another in an infinite variety of combos to make three-dimensional models on two-dimensional surfaces. The structure staff has also dabbled in building other household products these as minimalist incense holders and Ondanova surfboards designed of recycled wood and processed with laser-reducing equipment and CNC milling.

“At WOOMETRY all objects are built of 100% recycled wood that is rescued from the avenue and provided a next lifetime,” the imaginative style studio described. “As a end result, WOOMETRY avoids applying new products and adding more waste, as properly as conserving a good deal of drinking water, lessening CO2 emissions and avoids contributing to the rise in tree chopping globally. It’s critical to hold all the manufacturing domestically so that we continue to keep our carbon trace very low. We also like to know absolutely everyone included in the approach and connect with them immediately in get to be confident that the doing the job conditions are ethical and decent.”
The crew also collects and reuses discarded cardboard to deal their products for delivery somewhat than using new packages or plastic materials.
