Cooking New Materials
“Cooking New Materials” is based on a self-developed process to work with organic waste from the food industry in order to process it into new flexible, leather-like materials. The biomaterial offers similar toughness, durability and water resistance to normal leather materials.
Banana and orange peel or soy milk residues are bonded with a natural binder as a matrix. The resulting bio-composite material can be easily reused after use by recooking. It is a 100% “Zero waste” natural product.
Various manufacturing options such as laser cutting, embroidery, weaving, knitting, 3D printing and 3D modelling are also being tested, enabling me to work with the biocomposite from various design and construction perspectives. This material offers new design possibilities due to the many different processing possibilities and application areas, as well as a large commercial potential.
This is an independently developed technique，I am committed to using Food-waste to produce unique, versatile, sustainable, comfortable and durable new materials. It is 100% biodegradable and cause absolute no harm to the environment. The seemingly useless food wastes will reborn with a second life. Therefore, some of the bio-waste problems have also been solved. At the same time, I also hope that this material can replace the use of some plastic or animal leather.
Our focus is not only in practicability but also beauty and environment-friendly. By converging everyday life and enjoyments into an extraordinary experience, our material sets a new insights and outlooks for modern lifestyles，proper of those who want to fully enjoy the products they use on a daily basis in complete respect for the environment.
