COMPOSTABLE COMPOSITE

Bachelor project
HDK , 2016


A research into raw materials and sustainable design. The project ended up in the making of a composite material adapted to the natural cycle. It´s designed to be Good Waste.

Its based on paper and charcoal that binds carbondioxide in the ground, that means it´s lowering the amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It will also create a perfect ground for microbes in a compost and ferilize the soil for strong new plats to grow in.


*= The Academy of Design & Crafts, Gothenburg.





THIRTY PROCENT CHAIRS
@kioskenstudio
Autumn 2018


Thirty is the percentage amount of the food we waste.
Those chairs are made of that thirty procent.
The waste was turned into charcoal and transformed into a material with plant starch and eggshells.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE MATERIAL
DECIDE THE SHAPE?

@Kioskenstudio
2018

Does design objects appeal more to us, if the nature is more present during the designprocess?
Why, the obsession of perfectly jointed wood, polished sufaces, symmetric shapes?

Aiming to create a material with its own rules, for me as a designer, to be insipred by. Instead of searching for inspiration.
Depending on the amount of water in this material, the drying process will act diffrently. The components of the material will also add different colours and patterns.



PRANDIUM PROJECT

Exhibition @POP UP X PJADAD
Pjadad, Blekingegatan 16 Stockholm
2017

Prandium means breakfast. A collection of sculptures, made of waste from a traditional breakfast ceremony:
Newspapers, eggshells, coffe, bread and tea. 


GROW pt.1: CELLULOSA

Personal project, 2017

Growing a Symbiotic Culture of Bacterials & Yeast, also known as SCOBY is the waste product from Kombucha-brewing. It’s edible but not nice to eat in it’s raw shape. By refining it, the material may have many applications.




GROW pt. 2: MOLD

2017

Mold is a collective name for microscopic funghus that grows in multicellular threads. Mold is decay and can be very harmful. It can also be super nutritious and delicious. It save lifes (pencillinium) and you are probably eating it every week.
Beer, wine,  cheese and tempeh are some examples of victuals that enhanced with mold.  A gastronomic upcyling, better texture and also a good metod of conservation. It’s versatility made me search for further applications.

This project is discovering the possibilitys of using mold as a surface treatment in interior products. The aesthetic benefits and the texture.

SAVING TASTE

Course: EAT- Food culture,  Materiality & Design, 15 credits.
HDK , 2017

Saving Taste is a fusion between metods of craft and cooking. By discovering classic cooking metods and adding one of those to a crafted obect.

Smoking came to be my main method and applied on a bowl made of turned wood (oak). Suitable for plant based slowcooking in the oven, indoors. The bowl saves the taste of smoke and release it into the dish while cooking. The wood preserves the taste of smoke for a long time. It also adds a fregrance of barbecue indoors which create more of a ceremony around the dinner. A indoor Barbecueparty.

A second part of this project is going on right now through the course “EAT 2- Foodculture, Materiality & Design” at HDK . (2018-12-12).
