OXYGEN 18 is a modular acoustic pavilion, composed by a gridshell made out of wood and a cover of multiple layers made with natural fibres impregnated with bioplastic.
OXYGEN follows the Cradle-to-cradle principle as it's built with biodegradable materials mostly derived from waste: planks of wood, coconut and jute fibres, hemp ropes and bioplastic coating with a cornstarch base not suitable for food use.
OXYGEN is designed with an "organic living" vision, therefore all components used are biomaterials. As this product is totally organic, at the end of life, it can be disposed of as organic waste.
This project was created through the collaboration of architect Giacomo Garziano (G-G loop Studio) and myself.
