Embracing the concept of sustainability—a principle that is crucial for companies, designers, and architects to adopt—Nataša Perković debuts a furniture collection made from palm oil byproduct, turning something that was deemed to be an "environmental nuisance" into a tool that promotes sustainability.
The extraction of oil from oil palm leaves a large amount of unused fiber which is either burned for energy or left as a fertilizer. However, Nataša Perković maintains that there are much better ways to utilize palm oil byproducts. In this project, the Bosnian designer launches a stackable chair, three plates, and a pendant lamp while "using as little material as possible." Nataša Perković and her team also relied on "low-tech production methods" for the collection.
