Dessa is a sustainable furniture system that is meant to be a response to the phenomenon of excessive consumerism. The project allows for multiple use of the same components in production, thanks to the easy assembly and disassembly system, consistent with the "New Green Deal" and the principles of the circular economy. As a result, the production of materials will be limited, and the user will be able to replace and repair broken parts, and make changes to the appearance and size of the furniture. For this project, I created a special material from calcium protein and waste.
