Studio Klarenbeek & Dros is developing and stimulating a new production chain, in order to achieve CO2-binding and biocompatible materials that restore ecology, stimulate biodiversity and break the current destructive cycle of production.
"At this moment we experience a movement from agriculture to seagriculture. In the sea, excessive nutrients from agriculture, such as nitrogen and CO2 are bound in seaweeds, which we then convert into eco-compatible biopolymers that can replace fossil plastics. While purifying ocean and air. It simultaneously stimulates biodiversity and reduces the chance on excessive algal blooms, reinforced by the global rise of temperature."
All our talks are for free (whether you are a member or not), held in English, at the auditorium of the MUDAM (the "Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean") in Luxembourg.
Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
