The “Alga” chair shows the aesthetic and mechanical qualities of the algae material. It is derived from the alloy of invasive seaweed, gelling agents from seaweed. Each algae plays a specific role in the structure of this composite material, algae fibres replace glass fibres. It is a biodegradable object produced in an artisanal and semi-industrial way with the expertise of scientists with whom I collaborate.
