Research projects (03)

‘Lowt carbon footprint’ is a project based on the idea of using pollution (CO2) as raw material.

I produce objects from waste material mixed with a 100% natural resin (sodium silicate), which consumes CO2 when it’s dry.

I used wood dust and coffee grounds wastes collected from Lille industries.

I designed this object as first part of a pendant lamp. It’s the core of the lamp, a structure, which can ventilate the bulb light and support a lampshade.

Made out of recycled material, I used a 3D printing mould to produce it. It is strong, light and resistant.

I coloured the material using natural pigments.

Today, my project is just design research. I can’t produce them as industrial products.

It’s a work in progress projects.
