Small home items and furniture made from new, sustainable materials

GEOM

The message of the project

GEOM project is constantly on the lookout for natural, biostheirced materials that combine durability with a low environmental impact at the end of their product's life. The objective is to grow the Boutures line by creating tiny household goods and furnishings from new, sustainable materials with a natural feel.

The goal is to show that sustainable materials are accessible and fit for everyday usage, which is a solid step toward a better and cleaner society.

The idea behind the project 

Sára Kele (designer), Laurence Saugé from Boutures (crafter and merchant), and Marion Duzan collaborated on this project (ecodesign consultant). They are three partners with distinct but complementary backgrounds who are linked by a shared vision of a feasible, sustainable, and aesthetically pleasing design.

Sára Kele combines her artistic and aesthetic sensibilities with her knowledge in ecodesign. Marion Duzan will provide assistance with project coordination, ecodesign product creation, feasibility, and marketing. Laurence Saugé, as an engineer and brand owner, offers expertise in material research and development, product development, and an established retail system.

What next?

The objective is to create numerous objects and furniture: design research (which has already begun), prototype manufacturing, product testing (resistance, usage, etc.), and economic analysis. The goal at the end of the WORTH programme is to be ready to begin producing and selling these goods as an expansion of the BOUTURES line for both people and professionals. The WORTH programme also provides a chance to learn more about the European market, as BOUTURES is now supplied mostly in France.
