In a small town near Catania, in Sicily,
there lies An ice cream cocktail bar.

, Ricotta and Campari grapefruit,
A unique adventure
The cocktail bar offers a wide variety of flavours for your palette.
Riso Paradiso bar aims to take your palette on a sensory adventure through Sicily’s unique ice-cream making heritage
The reason for Riso Paradiso’s uniqueness, however,
is not only its novel ice-cream flavours.
What makes it stand out from any other ice cream parlour anywhere in the world is its interior and exterior decor.
the entire decor is entirely 3d printed.
From the light shades to the stool to every decorative piece in the ice cream bar is entirely 3d printed.
The dexterity and low cost of 3D printing make sense from an economic point of view.
The founders intend to sell copies of the uncommon 3D printed furniture designs,
Designs that can be quickly copied via the technology used to create them.
One reason this may be so is LFAM
Large format additive manufacturing ( LFAM) has become extremely popular in recent times.
A fast-growing startup Carasol created a proprietary LFAM robotic extrusion technology,
Provided the 3D printer to build up the ice cream bar furniture.
Caracol’s facility located in Como, near Milan Northern Italy, leverages numerous multi-axis extrusion systems and proprietary software platforms to overcome traditional 3D printing limits,
Towards a more sustainable future
It provides bespoke advanced design to production solutions for numerous sectors,
from maritime to aerospace.
The company aims to redesign the present production system,
Towards a more efficient, progressive and sustainable future,
Through sensible use of technology and consideration for nature and available resources.
Caracol may work with companies in energy, aerospace and other industries,
its technology is more beneficial to entrepreneurs and small scale enterprises (SME)
A reason for this is how affordable caracol’s LFAM extrusions are,
Most especially when used in the form of standard granulates.
Riso’s interior design materials were made with a mix of Biodegradable PLA and other recycled plastics.
why did it make more sense to 3D print the entire cocktail bar?
Blending talent and technology
The last reason for this is easy
Through a combination of ideas from the owners along with the creativity of Federica Cistuado a jewellery designer, The dexterity of Caracol’s technology and,
the talent of the local ice cream master franco Patane,
Riso provides a unique adventure,
Combining tradition and innovation is unique anywhere in the world.
