Innovative and environmentally friendly corrugated printer

Samsung‘s Origami printer is a prototype with an exterior made from corrugated cardboard, which simplifies the manufacturing process and makes it more environmentally friendly to dispose of. Assembled using a folding method, the recycled material is cut out and folded to shape the printer before the mechanism and engine unit are fitted.

Samsung won an International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2013 award for this innovative design concept but the main benefit is that compared to existing printers, this corrugated board printer will be recyclable even after it stops working.
