Keep Life

why is it more sustainable?

.104 is a vase made with organic waste and upcycled porcelain.

The back is made of Keep Life, a material obtained by crushing dried fruits’ shells (hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts, almonds, pistachios and peanuts) and sticking them together with a solvent & formaldehyde-free binder. The front vase is made of Capodimonte porcelain (traditional Italian porcelain).

Since they present imperfections, both components would have been scrapped. Instead, they were stitched together giving them a new identity and utility. This type of stitching recalls a traditional artisanal figure from the past, who used to repair dining plates by stitching broken pieces together with a metal thread.
