Panos Sakkas – The New Raw]
The New Raw crafts plastic waste with robots.
The New Raw is a research and design studio based in
Rotterdam (Netherlands) founded in 2015 by architects Panos Sakkas and Foteini Setaki with the ambition to give new life to discarded materials through design, robots and craftsmanship.
The New Raw develops its own (digital) craftsmanship techniques through a formal and technical language that highlights the texture and the layer-by-layer character of its in-house robotic manufacturing process. The exploration of the possibilities that the robotic techniques provide transform
plastic waste into beautiful and meaningful products that are 100% circular.
