Seashell circularity

Through this project, Lou Pavageau, Raphael Paris and I sought to find an innovative use for an environmentally friendly material that reuses shellfish to create new products. This new material was developed by Hugo Kermarrec and Morgan Guyader from the French company Malàkio. Traezhenn -black sand in Breton- is a tray intended for restaurants to highlight the oyster as an exceptional dish by presenting it in a high-end tray. The design is worked to appear almost as a fossil of the oysters, while making the aesthetic quality of the material stand out.
