Leaf brooch 3d printed with recycled Murano glass.
Guava is the result of a careful research and innovative work developed by the designer Matteo Silverio and his startup Rehub.
In Venice, on the island of Murano, 50% of the processed glass becomes waste. Every year about a thousand tons, a volume equal to that of the San Marco Campanile ends up in landfills without being recycled.
After a few years of research Matteo has developed a new process thanks to which he is able to transform glass waste into a new material, a paste that is easily workable at room temperature. This paste has a clay-like consistency and thanks to an extruder developed by the startup – currently subject of a patent – the glass paste can also be 3D printed.
Maison 203 is happy to introduce this new 3d printed glass-based material into the catalogue with a first brooch called Guava.
