Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we’ve been ignorant of their value.” (Buckminster Fuller)
Studio Dust concentrates on research through materials. “From dust to dust”. Dust is used as a material resource –symbol for a circular economy-, and as a metaphor for processes. One particle can’t make a huge impact (small and fragile), however a huge dust cloud can! In order to change something, we need to cooperate. Studio Dust is based on these two pillars: research through material with cooperation as its base. The material is always the starting point in the design process. It results in material design, material research or attempts to reveal new qualities in the material by creating a new narrative around the material.
