Stroncq & Modular by nature
ONE WEEK ABOUT Rethinking Plastic by curator Leonne Cuppen
Omlab in collaboration with Lilian van Daal | Stroncq
In the search for circular applications for construction, soil and biodiversity, Omlab developed an ecological material with the strength of gypsum concrete, consisting of 98% residual flows from sewage and drinking water treatment. The Stroncq seating object – which can also be used as a slope tile – was created in collaboration with Lilian van Daal. As a designer she specializes in biomimicry, in which nature serves as inspiration. Van Daal took the root network of plants as an example for a very efficient form of slope reinforcement. Seeds and minerals, specific to a certain terrain, can be included in the 3D print. The tiles are completely biodegradable and will eventually be taken over by the root network of the plants.
Omlab in collaboration with MVRDV | Modular by nature
Does all facade cladding have to be for eternity? Nature can do nothing with that. Omlab and architectural firm MVRDV came up with a modular product for the outdoor area, made of circular and biodegradable material. To make the city accessible to insects, birds and other living creatures.
