My final project for Design by Nature class was to create a flatpack object made of bamboo.
The objective of this product is that it could have many principles of sustainability as possible. That is why I tried not to waste material and to think about a second use for my product.
In the end, this bamboo sheet can be assemble as a fruit bowl or a vase.
