“It’s better without plastic” – that’s on everyone’s lips. But even the emerging boom around bio-plastics does not always make sense. Especially when agricultural land is farmed for plastic packaging production instead of food. So why not use food waste.
Studio Banani therefore puts itself in the bioplastic kitchen. We make plastic materials from the cooking water of red cabbage, the hard cabbage stalk and from coffee grounds.
The beauty of it is that the shapes are completely edible (even if our Food Lab team won’t praise the taste to the skies). They can also be re-cooked, reheated and reshaped. We find their constantly changing materiality particularly exciting: they deform and change color.
