Project: Algae

We live in a world that's overcome with trash. Through research and making explore opportunities for producing sustainable products.

Algae is a lampshade made from waist beer mats and seaweed. Through a process I developed, the outcome was a lightweight and strong material, suitable for many appliances. I further went on to explore natural colouring and how this could enhance the products aesthetics.

Exploring the possibilities of combining waste beer mats and natural seaweed to create alternative sustainable materials.

Alginate, beer mat pulp, sawdust and natural colouring experimentation.
