UNFOLD

Unfold is a material research that explores the versatility of a material created by living microorganisms. The material used in this project is made by a symbiotic culture of bacteria and

yeast. This biofilm composed of bacterial cellulose, becomes a solid material when dried. It’s biodegradable, strong, has a high

flexibility and can easily be shaped and folded in any desired shape. The project explores the possibilities to create relief surfaces and three-dimensional objects with the sheet material. By using a simple folding technique, complex structures can be created. The folded sheet can expand and contract and made into more

dynamic objects.
