Danish designers Jonas Edvard & Nikolaj Steenfatt created lighting & furniture from a seaweed & paper material in the Terroir collection.

The hardy material is created by drying the seaweed prior to grinding to a powder & fusing with glue & paper; with the high salt content serving as a natural preservative & a natural fire-retardant.

Speaking with design blog dezeen:

“As most people don’t know the actual strength of the alginate, they often think we put some extra glue inside, but it is only seaweed and paper” said Edvard.
