Social Designer, born 1993 in Hamburg.
Currently studying MA Eco Social Design in Bolzano, Italy. Within the context of her work, she explores raw materials, natural fibres, local production and under explored resources. In this way she encourages a deeper understanding of the materials and products that surround us. She is currently investigating flax in circular approaches and creating new applications/natural composites through material experiments.
Soft / hard: hard, semi-hard or elastic
Shiny / matt: both possible
Smells: very good like forest and honey
20% Natural spruce resin
10% Wood flour
10% Limestone flour
2% Natural pigments
– Toy for children (because it is not harmful)
– Sport equipment (longboard, yoga mat)
Linseed oil – is extracted from the linseeds.
Spruce resin – collected in my native forest in Bolzano.
Wood flour – waste product in wood processing. Purchased from a carpentry workshop in Bolzano.
Limestone flour – mineral which occurs worldwide
Natural pigments – various sources of vegetable and mineral origin
All components can be purchased regionally at different locations in Europe. In this project, waste products are used, but also selectively applied. This strengthens the value of regional resources.
Depending on the composition of the mixture, a solid, semi-solid or elastic material can be produced.
