Organico

Natural composite made from calcium hydroxide, casein and hemp fibers

58/2018

In his project Organico Philipp Hainke utilizes traditional and renewable resources for the development of a new, innovative material. An adhesive, composed of calcium hydroxide and casein, is used to press hemp fibers and shives into solid forms. Through extensive research, the optimal composition and structure was developed: a sandwich material with a cover of hemp fiber and a core of hemp shives, that is simultaneously stable and light.

 

Nutzhanf accounts for 85% of the volume

 

The resulting objects are characterized by an appealing design aesthetic somewhere between nature and technology. In a unique, purposeful way, the objects preserve the archaic character of their resources. This results in a clear design that does not forfeit sensuality.

 

It is important to note that the significance of the project can not only be seen in the final objects, but in the research of various ways of processing and using the material. It also contributes to a new and sustainable way of thinking about materiality and product life cycles.
