From urban areas removed autumn leaves become, with the addition of cellulose, open-pored, sound absorbing acoustic panels.
Leather offcuts from the production of one sofa are brought back into the context of the couch by becoming a side table with the help of glutine glue.
Both material studies are based on natural origins that allow for complete rotting and reduce waste from the respective industries.
