Carlo Ratti's sustainable orange squeezer serves juice in bioplastic cups made from the peel

Italian studio Carlo Ratti Associati has developed an orange squeezer that turns the waste fruit peel into 3D-printed bioplastic cups to drink the juice from. Created for global energy company Eni, Feel the Peel is a prototype orange squeezing machine that aims to bring circular design into everyday life. The 3.10-metre-tall experimental juice bar is topped by a circular dome filled with 1,500 oranges. When someone orders a juice, the oranges slide down into the squeezer where they are cut in half and juiced. After being juiced, the leftover orange peel falls into a see-through compartment at the bottom of the machine. The collected rinds are then dried and milled to make "orange dust", which is mixed with polylactic acid (PLA) to form a bioplastic material.
