*BIOTECA, material archive* ✨⚗️🍃
Inauguration 6/6 !!!
I am finally launching BIOTECA material archive, a new Instagram account that will focus on the regular posting of my biomaterial research and projects. This research started in 2016 at the Fabtextiles at the Fab Lab Barcelona, IAAC and it's now continuing through BAU, university center of design in Barcelona.
Today, it seems to me crucial that material research and design contribute to the development of an ethical industry inspired by know-how and practices that predate the explosion of oil exploitation. With BIOTECA material archive my goal is to innovate through design, contribute to the growth of this new community of material designers invested in sustainable developments and inspire manufacturers to implement more ethical and ecological means of production. I believe that our future will be forged by this common effort.
BIOTECA material archive will gather both old and new personal biomaterial projects, the first part will be centered on bioplastic researches using different kinds of biopolymers from vegetable sources (starch, algeas) or animal sources (collagen, casein, chitin). Those bioplastics are NOT petroleum-based, they are bio-based, biodegradable and compostable.
As designers giving birth to objects, it is my duty to care about the life of those objects, to think about their durability, recyclability and also about the end of life. Material research and analysis should be part of the early stage of every design processes. On BIOTECA material archive Instagram account, I will share knowledge about different types of eco-materials to help designers to think about potential applications for create positive environmental impact.
