Printer made from recycled cardboard

July 12, 2013

OrigamiSamsung Electronics employees create cardboard mono laser printer using 100 percent recycled paper.

Engineering On The Edge reported that Min-chui Kim, Sang-in Lee and Seung-wook Jeong of Samsung Electronics have designed a printer made from recycled cardboard, with the product winning a Gold rating in the annual Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2013 competition.

Known as the Origami, the personal mono laser printer is designed to combine the ideas of companies recycling the paper they use every day and disposing of old electronics equipment in an environmentally friendly way; with the device’s exterior being made of 100 percent recycled paper.

The designers claim that the exterior has the same durability as a plastic cover as it is made using an origami-based assembly method, i.e. folding the cardboard to make it stronger, with the print engine housed inside.

Samsung Electronics also won Gold awards for two other products: the Mate, which is a customisable personal printer; and the Clip, a screw-free personal printer that uses integrated clips to allow for a “simple, foldable construction process”.

A video of the construction of all three of the printers can be viewed here.
