Cellulose-based Bioplastic mixed
together with Charcoal
Black Matter is a cellulose-based bioplastic mixed together with charcoal,
harvested in local surroundings. The charcoal is powdered and applied on
a natural hemp fabric and shaped into an object.
During the experimental process the materials mix together freely and follow the natural fabric transformations into a contemporary and functional design object. Cellulose based, organic, lightweight but also stable and waterproofed, the object is long-lasting and sustainable.
Each item is hand-made and it might vary slightly in colour or appearance, which we hope you see as an advantage rather than a vice!
How to recycle: The main body of this product is fully degradable. Cables, bulbs and fittings require separate recycling.
