Dutch designer Dirk van der Kooij is obsessed with rapid prototyping.

7 Apr

Dutch designer Dirk van der Kooij is obsessed with rapid prototyping. Best known for his Endless Chair, made from a continuous string of recycled plastic using a 3D printer, the design has grown into a range of products all with the goal of making the production process more visible. Speaking at Design Indaba recently, van der Kooij explained, “the best thing about recycled plastic is it has history.”

The tinkerer’s focus is on the evolution of his designs, continuously rebuilding his “robot” as a way of advancing his work. This relentless dedication to perfecting the machine’s output reflects his progressive approach and commitment to adding to the design conversation.
