It all started with the discovery of raw timber waste and ended with them making use of that resource, by turning it into a new material.

They stumbled a pond a random experiment of mixing the timber waste with bio-resin where the solution expanded up to x5 its origin volume and turned into a strong and foam like material which was used as the seat of their turned ash legged chair. Beautiful insight into timber wastage and experimental resin use.
