A student at the Design Academy in Eindhoven from 2005 to 2010, Dirk van der Kooij uses a robot arm to create furniture from recycled plastic wire. Formed from melted pieces of recycled refrigerators, the flow of liquid plastic extruded at the tip of the robotic arm creates a multilayered, seamless look. As a result of the attention and his work to fine tune the output of his robotic 3D printer, van der Kooij found himself with a real business on his hands, a business which now employs four people: Studio Dirk Vander Kooij.
