Terra | Adital Ela - these stools are made from earth and natural fibers in a unique compression process that was developed based on a long term study of materials and of ancient building methods. In this project I act as a “designer-gatherer”, all materials were gathered from construction and agricultural waste and from the natural environment.

Blended material by Tom van Soest Second life for old construction material. His blender grinds glass, bricks, concrete and even entire sinks into powder. By baking the powders in a specific mix at a high temperature, new stone-like materials are created with which you can build again: Blended Materials. Van Soest conducted many experiments to find the right mixture, shape and heating process. 'Trial bakes' show an enormous variety in color and texture.

End Matter by Gaëlle Gabillet and Stéphane Villard. Material formed by the vitrification of asbestos-contaminated construction detritus. The high thermal inertia and aesthetic qualities of this material is used to create bricks, tiles and floor tiles that resist high temperatures and diffuse heat.
Berlin designer Jannis Hülsen upholstered this stool by using bacteria to grow a cellulose skin over its surface. Called Xylinum after the bacterium used to create it, the furniture is immersed in a tank while the bacteria consumes sugar and builds a cellulose fibre structure. Once finished it can be dried out to form a material that's 100% biodegradable www.jannishuelsen...
