5. Atelier Barb - The Bio Series.

Atelier Barb is a design studio founded by Safiye Ozkan and Haydar Bayindir, with a focus on creating innovative and responsible materials.

Their aim is to encourage their audience to interact with waste streams and abundant ingredients in an unbiased manner.

The Atelier Barb Bio Series comprises a range of products and materials crafted from organic waste and natural binders. These mediums include eggshell waste, non-edible parts of the artichoke plant, rock salt, plant-based dyes, algae, and starch-based binders.

The resulting material is both sturdy and durable, making it ideal for creating functional art objects, tableware, wall tiles, furniture, and other surfaces designed for longevity and eventual decomposition.

All objects are crafted with regenerative materials and renewable resources, with the least amount of energy possible. Designed, developed and produced in-house by Atelier Barb.
