Omdanne

SOLVE design studio presents its capsule collection Omdanne which includes three pieces of clothing that can transform into over 10 styles each, from jumpsuits and dresses, to trousers and jackets. Moreover, all three pieces are 100% biodegradable if buried in the soil. Looking to discourage excessive consumption, the collection makes use of natural, renewable resources, product life-cycle tractability and powerful magnets to create a sustainable design of multi-functional and biodegradable clothing.

Natural Composite Pillar

The prototype is one of the largest 3D printed biological artifacts today, created using a novel sustainable manufacturing technology deploying exclusively natural materials: Cellulose, which is the most abundant biomaterial on earth, associated with plant matter, and Chitin, a biomolecule extracted from the exoskeleton of insects and arthropods. The physical and mechanical material properties are in the range of high-density synthetic foams and low-density timbers. The artifact is based on renewable sources, widely available in nearly every ecosystem and naturally biodegradable.

Fundamentals Range

The Fundamentals remanufactured clothing range and accompanying wholly transparent system unlocks the latent qualities of undervalued resources. The impetus for this work was the devastating effects of the current linear, 20th century ‘take, make, waste’ fashion system which is the 2nd most polluting industry on the planet. This design system provides a solution to utilize textile and clothing waste through a comprehensive design strategy which includes remanufacturing processes and 3 upcycling techniques; conjoined, spliced and pieced; which could be applied to any given garment.

Waterfall Towers

The building transcends location as it reformulates an artificial site that becomes part of a unified natural environment. The limit between the city and nature is defined and intensified by the presence of the dam. Every form relates another, reflecting the symbiotic ordering systems of nature. More particularly in the specific concept, the fusion of landscape and architecture happens with the use of the flow of water as a functional and subsequently an organizational element.

The Loop

Located inside Devon House and spanning 4,000 sq ft, the project comprises of three main areas: an entry lobby at Devon House which merges into secondly, an experiential corridor and finally the main open display courtyard with recycling facilities. The design uses a limited palette of materials, such as recycled timber veneer, recycled material terrazzo flooring, each of which was carefully selected to tell a story and provide a continuous theme for the visitors.

Vintage Grandeur Roha

Sustainability is the unique feature of this project. The farmhouse has an effortlessness in its design. The state of art techniques along with locally available materials has enhanced the entire appearance of the region. Designing this part has given a breather to vernacular architecture. This has resulted in creating a welcoming and homely atmosphere. The simplicity of forms and structures has been derived from the regional architectural style. In this project Indian design is used which amalgamates in with the serene landscape.
