In his search for more sustainable design processes, Martijn Straatman from Studio Tinus investigated various old materials, traditional building techniques and various methods of construction. His studies concluded that there is much wisdom to be extracted from the medieval building techniques and these principles transpire in his MANUREALITY series, where Straatman explores the use of manure, a construction material traditionally used for exterior purposes to produce environmentally sound objects, designed for interior use.⠀
Manureality 1 is a statement collection that showcase the agility and properties of the material. The objects included in the series are available in limited series. The rest of the pieces included in the series are stool, side table and a cabinet.
This item is made to order only! Production time: 6 weeks. Each item is handmade and therefore, nearly impossible to replicate identically but we hope that you see
this as an advantage rather than a vice!
How to recycle: The product is fully degradable and it could serve as a fertiliser as well.
