TERRA ETERNITY

2018

La Réunion has the richest volcanic soil resources in the world. However, the soils have not been explored and used in the daily life of the island. Low furniture is characteristic items around Creole house because they are the most used furniture for daily rituals.

 

 I want to recreate them to support and enhance their everyday life with their volcanic heritage. For using the soils, I developed new materials, soils mixed with a natural adhesive. New material shows raw color and texture of soils and it is biodegradable. This project comes from their ground and will show potentials of local soils. Ultimately, it will return to their ground again. It’s circular storytelling about terra eternity.
