Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts graduate students Jonas Edvard and Nikolaj Steenfatt take fucus seaweed, a type of algae, from the Danish coastline and create chairs and lamps with it.

They dry and grind the seaweed into a powder. Then cook it into a glue, using the natural polymer in the brown algae. They then added the seaweed glue with paper that creates a durable material similar to cork. This new substance allows them to mold different products for their new Terroir Project collection.
