Today’s products are the result of a globalized world in which raw materials are brought together from all across the globe and mixed together to form a product.
This gives us the unique opportunity to experience the diverse abundance of raw material there is. But the products of today are created through complex and invisible structures and supply chains, where the consumer is oblivious to the material origin.
So I propose a new way of producing global products. A more responsible and transparent way. A way where the origin of the material is reflected in the product.
For this a formula is created. A formula where the quantity of the material is relative to the distance between the origin and the manufacture.
