Shortlisted 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.


This studio has been shortlisted in the emerging design studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
