The outer packaging of the catalog and notebook is made of ash wood, surplus material from furniture manufacturing. This shell consists of two square pieces of wood, edged with beautiful curves and concaves on the inside to reference the shape of a natural seed. The wood front and back are held together with hidden magnets. Inside the seed case are the catalog and a notebook, symbolizing the actual seeds, nestled on leather cushions made from materials for sofa manufacturing. The two pieces of the opened outer core can be used as condiment trays, making the design a good example of the eco-friendly reuse concept.
