Grown objects collection: All the products of this collection have been entirely bio-fabricated. This means, grown and harvested using biological processes. Grown in two predominant materials. A fungi bio agglomerate and bacterial cellulose, both grown in yerba mate: part of the "argentine cultural DNA' Following the same material identity, "Eco-warrior" is a collection of accessories, bags, hats, jewelry and even a Mate, also grown in yerba mate. Yerba mate, national infusion, argentine material.
Studio Tinello, directed by Silvio Tinello, an argentine Industrial Designer. Master in Sustainable Design, graduated from the University of Philadelphia. Pioneer in the use of Yerba Mate as a nutrient for material design. Currently engaged in the investigation of bio-fabrication processes, the development of materials and their application and transfer in the design of products. For his early training in technical and craft schools, his creative exploration in the creation of content for the material culture, and in the last time his insertion in the field of scientific research as a former Fulbright scholar, make his profile as a designer marked by the intersection between the sciences and their need to transfer them creatively.
