If you happen to be lucky enough to be in Milan this week for the Salone de Mobile, don’t miss the stunning new piece from Studio Marlene Huissoud:‘Rhythm – Of Insects & Men’ on show at La Terrace (Via Private Oslavia 1, 20134 Milano).
Marlene, who’s studio is based at the workshop is a French materials designer who comes from a family of beekeepers. Her stunning new piece continues her exploration of bio resin, the material produced by the honeybee as waste, but now combining it with commonly discarded human glass waste. The pieces questions the idea of how two waste materials, natural and industrial can complement each other, giving an up-cycling approach, crucial to re-orientating ourselves to the natural world and finding new ways of generating cycles in our making process.
