The British designer has decided to start producing biodegradable furniture. Its first product consists of material which, after its useful life is completely biodegradable. This furniture fits perfectly into a “smart” house for Swedish students .

Roger Bateman, a senior lecturer of furniture design at the University of Sheffield Hallam University in the UK, spent a year working together with one of his students to simplify the production of fully biodegradable furniture. Green project started with the fact that a local company Netcomposites, commissioned a study by the conditions of possibility of use of plant components as a substitute for plastic materials used to make furniture.

The result of the collective work was a small wardrobe, a 100 percent made from flax and natural plastic derived from corn.

Environmentally sustainable furniture design involves the use of recyclable materials. At the end of the life of the object can be recycled and turned into new products, – says Roger.

Roger was originally developed in conjunction with Netcomposites fabric based on flax and biodegradable polymer PLA. Then he began designing furniture and the use of lightweight structural materials instead of particle boards, such as MDF or chipboard. Designer’m sure it will help reduce the environmental footprint on the planet .
