The great potential of marine algae
The uses of these organisms are being studied within the context of OD&M. A small team from Green Lab (London) will spend the next 6 weeks tutoring 12 MA Industrial Design students from Central Saint Martins. Having created a design led brief that focuses on the future of Algae, students will be encouraged to work with these incredible organisms to speculate the immense potential they could have in a more sustainable future. This brief will challenge them to work with living systems and encourage them to focus on material as a starting point.
For another hand, the students visited the company Haeckels and they listened to the founder more about the products he makes from the seaweed harvested from the shoreline and the benefits.
