The hemp panels are the result of research looking for a way to replace wood and plastic. Hemp is a sustainable crop that can be harvested multiple times per year. Its fibres are the strongest natural fibres.
The panels are lightweight and strong, made only from natural materials. The panels can be produced in any shape and size. The hemp used for the panels is locally sourced by HempFlax in Groningen, the Netherlands.
Jory Swart is a student at the Academie Minerva in the Netherlands. The panels were developed from research during his studies.
