Maizy is a range of PLA objects, powered by photovoltaic cells and rechargeable batteries. PLA is biodegradable and a sustainable alternative to petroleum products: its lactides are obtained from the fermentation of agricultural byproducts such as corn starch. The PLA has affected the way this collection was designed and developed: in addition to being more environmentally friendly than traditional plastic, PLA also has extraordinary visual and tactile properties.
Hence the decision to design a family of very pure objects, which enhance the beauty of the material. Aesthetic simplicity to go beyond the shape and explore the material.
