noun
Is made by combining biodegradable-, capable of decaying through living organisms and bijoux- from the French word bijou “(jewelled) ring”. A project that embodies a unique collaboration between luxury, materialism, and utopia. A brighter future relies on all of us, including luxury brands, to adapt and be mindful of the life cycles of our material consumption.

Embark on a visual exploration of biodegradable materialism and luxury and discover how it became jewellery.

BioBijoux draws on biological materials grown out of fungus and bacteria. The project uses these visuals to speculate about how these materials are used in luxury production, enabling us to imagine a future where more sustainable versions of these products might exist and to question existing cultural attitudes and economic structures around consumption.
