A furniture collection made from biocomposite

Austrian product designer Philipp Aduatz launched a new furniture collection made of a fibre-reinforced biocomposite.

The aim of the project is to maximise the use of renewable materials, resulting in a composite material with a minimal carbon footprint. The collection is made of a biocomposite consisting of wood, flax fibres and a biobased epoxy resin.

The collection consists of a chair, a side table, a coffee table, and a lamp. For the chair and tables, Aduatz sourced branches from the forest near his studio in Weidling, Lower Austria, which were then carefully wrapped with flax fibres and infused with dyed resin through an experimental process.

The collection will be on show at Isola Design Gallery from 15 April till 21 April 2024 during Milan Design Week.
