— Xylinum by Jannis Hülsen

Xylinum is an interesting project by Berlin designer Jannis Hülsen.

Named after the bacteria that produces an artificial cellulose material that covers the stool, the project poses the question: ‘What could future materials and production processes be like?’

The way the process works is that the piece of furniture immerses in a tank with a nutrition liquid while the bacteria consumes sugar and builds a cellulose fibre structure around it.

 

Once finished it can be dried out to form a material that’s durable and 100% biodegradable.
