The Silver Z

The task was develop a new material for Generation Z for year 2020. My group didn't only create a new material for Generation Z, we also create our material for older generation too, Generation called Silver Tsunami.

Year 2020 will be a fusion of Gen Z and Silver Tsunami, we call this combination The Silver Z.

Our material was biodegradable and ecological. It was combination of, for example wood, eucalyptus, cork, yam and PLA-staple fiber.  When heated, the plastic-like PLA-staple fiber gives some desired contrast to more natural looking materials while also being biodegradable.

Group members: Piia Jalkanen, Sanni Rajapolvi, Essi Aalto, Liisa Kaunisvirta and Laura Merivaara.
