Blue Tree

Finalist of the Loewe Craft Prize 2022

London, 2021

The Blue Tree is a 3d printed column made from used coffee cups dyed with a natural blue pigment shaped into an organic trunk like shape. This artefact is about artificial waste becoming natural again and about cardboard waste being transformed into a new kind of tree.

The column was designed to be able to host insects and plants with interstices and crevasses in which the different organisms. Our 3d printing process gives us the ability to work at both the human and insect scales. 

The column was shown in the conservatory of the Barbican Center during the exhibition Superorganism curated by the ODO Collective in April 2023. It was also exhibited at the Seoul Museum of Craft Arts in June 2022 during the exhibition of the Loewe Craft Prize.
