Print Your City — Hanth Square

Zero Waste Future, Coca-Cola (GR)



The “Print Your City” in Thessaloniki is a part of the ambitious “Zero Waste Future” program of Coca-Cola in Greece.

This project explores the possibility of using the city’s plastic waste in order to build public space with robotic 3D printing and citizen’s involvement. The idea is showcased with a temporary installation of a series of 3D printed street furniture that is made from household plastic waste and robotic 3D printing.







The 3D printed street furniture has integrated extra functions that promotes a healthy and environment-friendly lifestyle in the city. Each object can feature a bike rack or a mini gym, a tree pot or even a dog feeding bowl or a bookcase.




Each 3D printed street furniture piece is unique in colour and shape. Its ergonomic curvatures accommodate a relaxed body posture under the shadow of a tree.





800kg of plastic waste was recycled for the production of the furniture of this square.



The design, colours and extra functions were chosen by the citizens via the on-line platform.



The Thessaloniki project is developed within the framework of the "Zero Waste Future” programme, conceived and powered by Coca-Cola in Greece, in collaboration with the Municipality of Thessaloniki, Ecorec and Ogilvy Greece.
