Biophilica is the result of a year long material development, working with plant-based resources. It's driven by a wish to reduce the harmful chemicals that surround us – in our homes, offices, in our bodies. Biophilica materials are truly local, biodegradable, and recyclable. The same natural ethos permeates all explorations of process, color, and surface treatments: Nameth has worked with plant and mineral pigments and pre-plastic varnishes made from plant oils and wood resins. Her vision is materials that are created by the cities that use them. Materials created by London, for Londoners – that are people, animal, and environmentally friendly.
Mira Nameth is interested in the intersection of sustainability and aesthetics, and the aspect of time as a design factor. These three concepts influence the creation of the object, its usage, the relationship with its owner, and the end of the object.http://miranamethdesign.com
