Maizy is a collection of objects made of PLA and powered by photovoltaic cells and rechargeable batteries.
PLA is biodegradable and a sustainable alternative to petrochemical-derived products, since the lactides from which it is ultimately produced can be derived from the fermentation of agricultural by-products such as corn starch.
Using PLA affects the way we designed this collection: in addition to being more environmentally friendly than a traditional plastic, we think PLA presents extraordinary visual and tactile qualities, for this reason we designed a family of very simple objects with basic technologies, where the importance is given to the material itself. The purity of the shapes expresses its vocation, inviting to go beyond the form, to explore the material.
