Zelfo is a new material, a 100% biodegradable plastic made from plants or paper waste. I got in contact with the Zelfo team about a year ago when they were still in the process of setting up the business in NSW. By December they got that far to give workshops to interested designers and manufacturers about the possibilities of this new material. And that's when I traveled to the other end of Australia and met Paul and Martin. I designed a few articles for Zelfo's own collection; a vase and a stool. And I had some ideas of my own which I am working on. Unfortunately on the moment all energy is going into the production of musical instruments such as the didgeridoos but it won't be long before the prototypes of the vase and stool will be ready and I am looking forward to that.
Contact Zelfo Australia for more information about Zelfo, the biodegradable plastic.
