Furniture And Lighting Woven Design From Water Hyacinths

Called Sur les Rivages Designed by Amandine Chhor & Aïssa Logerot. The project aims to find new applications for the traditional craft in order to use up the plant, which grows extremely quickly and is causing environmental problems.

from Amandine Chhor & Aïssa Logerot :
The project sur les rivages proposes to revaluate the weaving craft of water hyacinth in Cambodia. This aquatic plant is harmful because it causes many environmental, sanitary and economic problems. Working over a 3 months trial period, in collaboration with Osmose  association and the women of Saray cooperative from the floating village of Prek Toal, the idea of this project was to experiment this organic material and the weaving techniques, in order to find new applications for the invasive plant. Cambodia, a country undergoing reconstruction, is trying to revive traditional crafts which have disappeared during the genocide. Here more than elsewhere, the design can help to upgrade some of these skills and become the link between technique, form and use.
