This is not just a pretty artwork, it's also a a testament of sustainability as it's made from all natural ingredients. Artist Emeli Höcks has an astounding passion for sustainability and has developed this composite material herself, using food waste and natural materials such as paper as well as sand and seaweed from the Swedish west coast.

The innovative material has a beautiful texture where you see the natural ingredients. The name comes from the circularity of the ingredients as well as the shape that combines circles in various ways. The materials is wrapped around a steel wire, shaped into a fantastical form and then sand papered smooth. The result is lightweight, yet durable. It can be placed on any angle and is remarkably easy on the eyes from any side. 

Some words about Emeli Höcks: she’s currently studying a master in Design at the Academy of Design & Craft in Gothenburg (HDK) focusing on spatial, furniture and product design. With a special interest in sustainable issues and materials, she’s with her art searching for new ways of working towards a more sustainable future. We love how she pushes us to think new and responsible around how we both consume materials and enjoy art. Read more in Emeli Höcks' artist portrait.
