Flax-reinforced composite materials
- story by Studio Bart Vernooij
Studio Bart Vernooij is a fresh design studio focussing on material research and product development, often incorporating new materials and production techniques in these products. At the moment the main focus is on the development and application of sustainable alternatives to fibreglass in composite materials. This done with the use of natural fibres, like flax, and partially biobased resins. As a proof of concept these have been successfully applied in surf- and skateboards, but the range of possibilities is much wider.
