SZ Magazin, 2020

The German magazine SZ Magazin invited us to design a product “Do It Yourself”, and we knew the solution was meant to be the material, and a material everybody could create at home with waste.

And what are the most common organic waste in a German house? Probably ground coffee and potatoes.

Recycling those two materials and adding a couple more (cornstarch and white tail) we have design a material that can be moulded into different shapes using objects from home as a mould.

We have proposed a fruit-bowl, a lamp screen or a set of cupholders, but feel free to try any shape or product!

Materials: Coffee ground, potatoes peels, cornstarch and white tail.
