Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2022 emerging design studio of the year, Studio Samuel Tomatis is a French design studio.
Seaweed is invading the beaches of Brittany at an alarming rate. Eutrophication is a process by which oxygen is extracted from the water due to pollution allowing this organic but polluting and toxic material to proliferate.
Samuel Tomatis Studio began working on a project five years that revealed the thousand and one properties of seaweed.
Reusing this problematic biomass and using it as a biomaterial without any addition from petrochemicals for design and furnishing is one of the great challenges taken up by the Samuel Tomatis Studio.
