___Transnatural is part of the Dutch Design Week 2017 at the VDMA building in Eindhoven. The label launches the new designs Hairy Tales and the Wood Crystals collection.
Hairy Tales creates a sustainable surface-altering process through the use of the natural and abundant material of hair. In the printing process human carbonized hair creates graphic patterns on diverse metal of modular objects.
The Wood Crystals are developed to give wild bees burrows in which they can nest in urban environment. At the same time the design offers humans some aesthetic pleasure as sculptures, tables or stools. Due to the residency of more and more bees, the pollination process in city areas will increase that will improve the urban ecology.
The in- and outdoor Wood Crystals are made from residual city wood, each cut in a diamond shape by a robot. To extend the comfort and aesthetics, the indoor Wood Crystals refer to the outdoor models and have a high quality finish.
Visit us at the Vestdijk 25-27, on the 21-29th of October in Eindoven.
