Samples of Alberte's seaweed-based material
Alberte is a designer based in Denmark, who spent the last months at the Textile Center in Blonduos as part of the Fabricademy, where she explored the potential of locally sourced seaweed as a sustainable and versatile textile material. Her work initiates a sensorial dialogue between human and seaweed, comprising a material library and experiments towards three dimensional objects and textured surfaces. These days, her Seaweed Dialogues are also shown during the Design March in Reykjavik.
