Sustainability is more about integration over innovation. Sustainable solutions for the products in the future need to be diverse. We need to consider everything.
This is a set of 120 biomaterial encyclopedia cards designed to make exploring materials easier during the design process. With makers in mind we needed to test it. A small group of Industrial Designers and I held a design challenge centered around how we might re-utilize these materials in the future.
We researched a wide range of biomaterials to then simplify this information for playing cards. Each group of sustainability gurus and students were given a few cards to review + create a story.
Encouraging designers to design with mindfulness of our earth and consumption through the imaginative minds of kids.
