philipp hainke’s organico utilizes traditional and renewable resources for the development of a new, innovative material. presented during milan design week, the collection of chairs and partitioners combines nature and technology with a material that contributes to a new and sustainable way of thinking about materiality and product life cycles.

the unique texture is the result of the manufacturing process

 

 

using an adhesive composed from calcium hydroxide and casein, the designer pressed hemp fibers and shives into solid shapes. through extensive research, the optimal composition and structure was found for a sandwich material with a cover of hemp fiber mat and a core of hemp shives that is stable and light at the same time.

the pieces are designed to function as a group

 

 

in a unique, purposeful way, the objects preserve the archaic character of their resources with a clear design that does not forfeit sensuality. the significance of the project can also be seen in the research of various ways of processing and using the material to introduce a new sustainable method.
