Studio Nienke Hoogvliet explored the possibilities of seaweed as a material in a study of almost two years. The result is a wide variety of materials: a soft yarn made of seaweed, a surprising colour pallet of natural textile dyes, a normal dye and bio-plastic.

The products of her new SEA ME COLLECTION visualize the possibilities.To show the potential of these materials, Nienke designed a chair and a table. The seating of the chair is made of seaweed yarn and dyed naturally with seaweed. This was woven by hand into a soft seating. The leftovers of this process are used to create a regular paint for the tabletop and this waste was used to make the bio-plastic bowls.

That’s how she wants to visualize how seaweed can be part of our homes in the future. The process and research are documented in a book called – SEAWEED RESEARCH by Studio Nienke Hoogvliet. The book can be purchased in the webshop. (Only in Dutch, English translation is expected fall this year).
