BIIDEN

A project developed in Japan for a bio design program, Biiden Kobo is luxury from nature. Our target was to reduce the more than 8 million tons of plastic from cosmetics goes into the ocean every year. Embodying circular design principals, we designed a fully biodegradable solution to plastics waste. Using the latest in genetic engineering and new emerging lab-grown techniques to introduce a environmentally low-impact solution for production. 

The actual beauty products will be engineered from the DNA from the California Sea Hare and the Abalone to produce a range of hues and iridescent pigments.

The packaging will be produced from chitin-base polymers found in arthropods and sea urchin which are 100% biodegradable.
