The Algae Room @ Tokyo Designers Week 09

We're* proud to announce our selection to exhibit our installation ‘The Algae Room’ at Tokyo Designers Week 2009. Our competition winning entry was awarded 300,000¥ and was exhibited between 30th October – 3rd November 2009.

The Algae Room is our speculative reconfiguration of the home, one enabling the domestic growth of fuel; dissipating state fuel production to give individuals more control over the impact they make on the Earth.

We invited visitors to the installation to take a seat and bask in the cool green glow of fermenting algae, chomp on some Nori and contribute a touch of CO2 to our bioreactor.

You can get a more in-depth look at our trials and tribulations through our wonderful blog.
