Chicle objects by Hella Jongerius

Dutch designer Hella Jongerius was commissioned by The Nature Conservancy to create objects for the show “Design for a Living World” in 2009. In this project, Jongerius played with chicle, a natural latex, and created objects using chicle. She used the elastic and adhesive properties of chicle to create textured surfaces and connection planes between materials. The resulted objects have a strange beauty. However, they are not suitable for industrial use as the chicle material is very fragile in nature. livingworldtop livingworld8 livingworldtop2 livingworld7 livingworld4
