3form is generating buzz in design circles with a very cool material called eco-resin .
Ecoresin is a proprietary translucent, co-polyester sheet material that contains a significant amount of recycled content but also retains its core physical properties. But what is it used for? Ecoresin is used as the building block to produce products such as those pictured above and results in architectural panels that have superior optical, mechanical and fire properties and that promote clean air quality.
We’re not completely sure what all that means, but their website looks really cool. Plus, they are a contributor to the National Building Museum’s The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture and Design - an exhibit investigating new green home ideas, solutions and debates.
