Description

XUFA MARMOL is a bowl prototype made of chufa residue colored with natural dye (charcoal and chalk).

After the chufa is crushed to make the orxata (popular beverage in Valencia, Spain), an important amount of waste is left aside. Chufa residues are usually left on the fields to serve as mold and fertilizer. Xufa Proceso aims to use some of this raw material for future design materials and daily objects, a way of achieving a sustainable and bio-degradable fabrication process. Partnering with local farmers and local orchateros, it reclaims Valencian heritage, betting on the many possibilities that new appropriations of the chufa waste can offer. The project develops a range of new materials and original textures, which will be turned into a collection of objects.

About the designer


Sarah Viguer

I am a textile / material / object designer. I live and work between Marseille (France) and Valencia (Spain). My research focuses on textiles, local craftsmanship, eco-designed materials and project methods from cultural and disciplinary intersections. I collaborate with many artisans to develop production scenarios based on an exploration of raw material. I am also founder of Xufa Proceso (a design initiative based in Valencia, with the objective of exploring eco waste from xufa roots agriculture), design lecturer at the Marseille School of Design and consultant in design anthropology (French Development Agency, International Trade Board of Madagascar, Cerfav).

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
