In a world increasingly conscious of its environmental footprint, a new player has emerged on the design scene – Melt. Founded by the creative mind behind Studio Hopkins, Ben Hopkins, this innovative brand is leading the charge in crafting 3D-printed products that seamlessly integrate into both workspaces and everyday life.
Melt’s current product lineup comprises four meticulously designed offerings, with the added allure of customization to cater to individual preferences or even create bespoke designs tailored to specific projects or brands. Let’s take a closer look at their eco-conscious creations.
50/50 Caddy: Your Work Essentials, Reimagined
The 50/50 Caddy stands as a testament to Melt’s commitment to merging style and functionality. This desk organizer redefines how we store our daily work supplies. Crafted with precision and care, this piece embodies the brand’s dedication to sustainability without compromising on utility.
Strap Trays: Smartly Stackable, Impressively Organized
Melt’s Strap Trays are more than just storage solutions; they are a demonstration of the brand’s design ingenuity. These trays nestle together seamlessly, offering a sleek and efficient way to corral small objects in your workspace.
Slice: A Slice of Elegance on Your Desk
In the form of Slice, Melt provides a desktop tray that elevates organization to an art form. Designed to support a cork space divider and headphone hook, it combines form and function effortlessly.
Creature Lamp: Illuminating Your Environment, Sustainably
For those in search of inspired lighting solutions, Melt presents the Creature Lamp. Articulated and versatile, it is available in both wall-mounted and panel-mounted configurations, and it harnesses the power of battery-operated LED technology, all while remaining rechargeable.
The Melt Difference: Sustainable Manufacturing
What sets Melt apart is its unwavering commitment to sustainable manufacturing practices. The brand employs cutting-edge 3D printing techniques, utilizing bio-based filaments crafted from recycled food packaging waste. This approach not only reduces waste but also helps conserve valuable resources.
Melt’s manufacturing process hinges on two varieties of PLA (polylactic acid) filament, both derived from plant-based sources. ReFlow Matte rPLA, originating from cornstarch and recycled food packaging waste, stands as a testament to the brand’s mission to repurpose materials in inventive ways. Additionally, Polymaker PolyTerra PLA offers a bio-based filament with a smooth matte finish that enhances the aesthetics of their products.
In an era where sustainability is paramount, Melt goes the extra mile. For every spool of material purchased, the brand plants a tree in partnership with One Tree Planted. These trees are strategically planted in regions where the spools are sold, further contributing to a greener planet.
Cork: The Natural Partner
Another cornerstone of Melt’s ethos is the use of cork, a natural, renewable, and recyclable material. This biodegradable wonder is not only environmentally friendly but also a symbol of the brand’s commitment to responsible sourcing. Cork oak trees, from which cork is harvested, can thrive for up to three centuries, ensuring a sustainable source of raw materials for generations to come.
As the world seeks innovative ways to harmonize design with sustainability, Melt emerges as a torchbearer for conscientious consumerism. With its fusion of cutting-edge 3D printing and eco-friendly materials, this brand is not just shaping products; it’s shaping a brighter, greener future.
