[form follows] confluence

Bioplastic plates and bowls. 

In the project ‘[form follows] confluence’ I address the contemporary pace of consumerism and raise awareness to how we engage with the products we use in our daily lives. Industrialization - which made mass production possible - has made us accustomed to having access to... pretty much everything, all the time. People have a constant need for change and innovation, which can create permanent dissatisfaction.

In this project I developed prototypes of natural, reformable dinnerware made from bio-plastic material to bring more awareness on the value of domestic, everyday products and how we live with them. It offers the possibility of change and sustainability at the same time. 
Interaction with our products and being able to work with them, creates the opportunity to a better understanding of our products, where they come from and how they are made, as we become so distant from their origins.
