a modern table that seamlessly blends the beauty of organic forms with the innovation of biodegradable concrete. Inspired by the elegance and strength of nature, Flora is a testament to sustainable design and contemporary aesthetics.
Flora is born from a deep admiration for the organic
shapes and resilience found in nature. Drawing inspiration from the
graceful curves of leaves, the intricate patterns of tree branches, and the enduring strength of natural materials, we've created a table that honors the beauty and sustainability of the natural world.
Flora is crafted from a unique blend of biodegradable concrete and aluminum. which combines biopolymers such as corn starch, sugarcane, potato starch, or cellulose with fine plant fibers like hemp jute, and sand. This innovative material not only mimics the strength and durability of traditional concrete but also offers the added benefit of being eco-friendly and biodegradable.

I am Hasan Pishahang, an industrial design graduate, currently pursuing a PhD in architecture at Florida Atlantic University. My primary expertise lies in advanced and biodegradable materials, as well as innovative manufacturing techniques.
