Beazley Designs of the Year Product
Batch.works and Batch.shield
Batch.works is a sustainable 3D printing designer and manufacturer, based in London. One of their products is the Batch.shield visor, designed in 2019 and distributed widely during the coronavirus pandemic.
Batch.works came about because founders Vaissieres and Mcloughlin-Greening wanted to develop an alternative to centralised manufacturing, by using 3D printers.
Batch.works abide by the ethos of producing locally, so that materials can be easily tracked as they enter and leave the factory. They also repurpose materials, avoid landfill and generate minimal waste.
Designed by Julien Vaissieres, Milo Mcloughlin-Greening and Salomé Bazin.
