Biocomposite Materials

Our biocomposites leverage lightweight waste materials derived from rice husks, coconut fibers, eggshells, and more. We combine these waste with durable resin, allowing us to craft and build with non-virgin resources, as a result lowering our carbon footprint.

Waste materials are always sourced from local communities, helping to minimize pollution caused by waste incineration, landfill, and ocean dumping.

With a wide variety of colors available, we have repurposed unwanted waste materials into exquisite new products that are both luxurious and environmentally conscious, perfect for enhancing your home.

Rice Husk·

Rice Husk

Rice husks are discarded as part of the milling process in agriculture. It is a highly stable material with exceptional longevity and durability.

This waste material allows us to create objects that are both visually appealing and environmentally friendly while reducing waste from rice agriculture.

Coconut Fibre·

Coconut Fibre

Coconut fibers from the external shell of the fruit produces an end material that is hardy, with a visually tactile aesthetic. With over 60 million metric tonnes of coconut produced annually, a large amount of coconut waste is generated as a result. By upcycling the by-product that is coconut fibre, we reduce the need for new resources in the production process.

Egg Shell·

Egg Shell

Discarded and unwanted egg shells, are cleaned and crushed, then combined with resin to form a new material. This series of biocomposites have the appearance of terrazzo and apart from natural tones, colours of blue and charcoal are introduced using plant-based dyes to offer more colourways.

Coffee Grounds·

Coffee Grounds

Working with cafe chains, we collect used coffee grounds which they would otherwise have thrown into their trash. With the rise in the number of cafes and coffee drinkers, the amount of coffee ground waste has also increased significantly over the last decade. The opportunity to upcycle coffee grounds into solid surfaces that exhibit a lovely dense and slight textured look therefore presents immense potential for future building purposes.

Plastic Waste·

Plastic Waste

Plastic waste is a highly resistant material whose beauty resides in the very dramatic effect that results from the random solidification of the original plastic pieces. Ocean-bound PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic waste is a public health hazard. By upcycling it, we hope to do our part to reduce ocean pollution.
