Seaweed is a versatile plant-like organism that is undervalued in its capabilities. My MDP is a range of recycled seaweed lamps. The shade components will be manufactured using a combination of seaweed, recycled paper and agar dried to form a fabric type material. The base of the lamps will be driftwood collected along our beaches. The aim of this project is to repurpose unwanted beach materials that otherwise would be left to rot on our shores and to create an aesthetically pleasing homeware with minimal cost and impact on the environment. I look forward to hearing your feedback.
