We found this amazing article today on Dezeen featuring Berlin design studio Blond and Bieber. The duo uses algae to create colorful dyes for textile printing and has just won a competition for young designers organized by Lodz Design Festival.
The studio’s founders Essi Johanna Glomb and Rasa Weber have also created an analogue textile-printer that produces its own dye using different types of algae. Another interesting point about this? Dezeen says in the article that “the prints are photo sensitive and change tone over time when exposed to sunlight, creating a ‘biodynamic colour palette.'”
