LUISS ENLABS Acceleration Program H1 2017 – Startup Spotlight: PlayWood

30 January 2017
The Winter Batch 2017 of LUISS ENLABS Acceleration Program has started. LVenture Group & LUISS ENLABS will present each startup who has entered it one by one in a "Startup Spotlight". Here's PlayWood an innovative 3D printing connector system that allows you to build your own custom-made furniture.

PlayWood, startup currently taking part in LUISS ENLABS Acceleration Program, is an innovative polyamide 3D printing connector system that allows you to build your own custom furniture with simple wooden tables with no need to drill, screw, glue or hammer.

The PlayWood products link to a new concept of dynamic decoration that is both economically and environmentally friendly, allowing one to create work spaces, creative studios, pop-up stores, ateliers, and everything in the user’s imagination that complies with recreating, recycling, and saving. With PlayWood, the furniture can be adapted over time, while minimizing the impact on the environment — saving time, effort and money.

Building furniture with the PlayWood system requires only two components: connectors and wood panels. There are three types of connectors that are made with 3D printing, each of which is arranged to connect the panels together at different angles. Ultimately, the panels can have variable dimensions according to the user’s needs and a thickness of 1.5 cm to 2 cm.
