The project

In order to raise awareness about the circular economy, Claude Wolf, Senior lecturer at the University of Luxembourg, with bachelor students in mechanical engineering decided to design an interactive installation which could transform a disposable polymer product to a recycled product with higher added value or functional purpose. 


The process called “upcycling” is divided into three main steps:

  • Decompose the initial product with a grinder
  • Make a new material base
  • Create a new product using a 3D printer
