TERROIR / furniture in seaweed and paper

TERROIR
TERROIR

The project contains a new material developed from seaweed and is created as a research into local materials. The seaweed is harvested along the beach of Denmark. After being dried the seaweed is ground into powder and cooked into glue, utilizing the viscous and adhesive effect of the Alginate - the natural polymer of the brown algae. The aim of the project is to design objects with character derived from the cultural surface of the landscape.
The materials are created from renewable resources and the production acts as a recycling of natural materials in a green loop of energy.
