Carl-Ludvig Svensson recently graduated from Design School Kolding with the ambition to create multifaceted experiences that value the complexity in which they exist. He has gained previous experience working for well known designers within the fields of furniture and spatial as well as graphics and branding.
He seeks to learn from interdisciplinary collaborations that could benefit from a hands-on approach to design through an investigative and expressive process. Always an audiobook running. Preferably outside gardening. Alongside with researching the uses of carbon within product design he is selected for What Matter_s 2020, collaborating with VIDA wood to make use of their monthly waist of 6000 cubic metres of wet sawdust.
Soft / Hard, Shiny / Matte: Customizable texture and hardness
Smells: Organic metallic
Others: Material Classification: Recuperavit/ mutant Material recipe: Carbon heavy biochar as well as engineered foams acts as matrix material for a variety of binders. Spungy pieces made in collaboration with Lab La Bla and based on their gluten manufacturing techniques. Special thanks to Hanna Carlsson for supplying tightly bonding biodegradable glue.

– Might be interesting in terms of heat resistance
– Surfacing with low reflection
– In space
– In connection to cultivation and future farming
– Grind or mix biochar into appropriate particle size.
– Add collagen glue to biochar and make sure to spread it evenly within the dusty mass.
– Pour in a form and leave to dry. For best results try to get the material to dry evenly.
The final result is a small collection of materials that all involve a carbon rich source which later have been treated in a variety of ways including bonding with pine resin, gluten, paper or collagen.
