Robot Shit Exhibit,
the very first exhibition
that promotes the reuse
of 3D printing waste.

What is Robot Shit? Not everyone might be aware of the amount of discards robots produce through the process of 3D printings and it’s from this lack of awareness that DesignWanted, _sucks. and Caracol, in collaboration with Isola, have decided to realize “Robot Shit”, an exhibition where irony and provocation unite with the sense of responsibility. Humor is key, in a world where the term “sustainability” is almost on everybody’s mind, but on nobody’s true intentions.

Reshape The Trend to Expose the Truth
This is the mission of the Robot Shit PROJECT.

Sustainability and environment are inflated themes during the Design Week that’s why _sucks. and DesignWanted want to talk about these themes in a different, self-deprecating and provocative way. Because when design generates waste and, above all, when brands try to disguise their products with green washing, even the most passionate in the sector can say what we all think: sometimes, design _sucks.

From Robot shit
to design shit.

Robot Shit Project sees the involvement of various young, ambitious, attentive to the future designers. We want to launch with them a concrete message that does not remain unsolved, but that translates into a line of products designed to hack and improve other products.
