MATERIALS FROM WASTE  

Designer / Tahiya Hossain in collaboration with MA Biodesign

This project is an exploration into materials made from Mycelium and coffee waste. A deep dive look into the culture of mycelium and coffee waste merged together into a design solution. We designed our mycelium tiles through Rhino and Grasshopper programming and in the form of a spider chart in relation to our data collected from university students of Central Saint Martins on their amount of coffee intake. The data is then transferred into how much coffee waste went into our material.
