CyanoFabbrica

Cyanobacteria biomineralized frames

CyanoFabbrica aims to harness cyanobacteria’s intrinsic ability to biomineralize for the design of novel biofabrication strategies. The organism played a fundamental part in the design system and contributed to the final aesthetics, which are dictated by the way the bacteria binds the substrate. No two are alike. This type of fabrication shows promise for the future as it can offset its emissions, due to the bacteria being kept in constant growth allowing photosynthesis to happen. At the end of their life the sunglasses can be destroyed and used as substrate for new products.
