The studio reports that 40 football-field-sized forest land is being destroyed due to high consumption. Almost 800 million tons of garden waste is generated in Istanbul along with 1.3 billion tonnes of food waste due to high consumption. If this waste is left untreated, it can create problems for the environment by accumulation.
Designers and architects working with the R&D team of Ottan Studio have designed commercial materials from up-cycled bio-composites such as food, agricultural and garden wastes. The designers have managed to retain the original color and natural texture of the materials without adding any artificial coloring chemicals. The material is durable and long-lasting than most wood material that we derive from deforestation.
