The Banana Project

RISE Research Institute of Sweden
Project together with Tiffany Abitbol

In 2021, I initiated a direct collaboration with the scientist Tiffany Abitbol at RISE the Research Institute of Sweden, in a research project of potential new biomaterials coming from waste streams such as fruit peels. The investigation focused on banana peel, based on its effective protection, its strength, and the benefits of its bio compounds.

This project investigates different methods of production, aligning with tendencies increasingly oriented towards manufacturing with nature itself. And it explores the results via the material-driven design method, analyzing its material properties and composition, market applications, the possible receptiveness of the public, and associations with the material.
