Color Quotient: Plastic and wood meet to create furniture in Micaella Pedros’ Joining Bottles project

During her studies and research in Design Product at the Royal College of Art, 2016, Micaella Pedros began working on the concept of ‘native technology’ as result of an interest in the importance of culture in international development. The idea of a native technology stems from technology born out of a specific place while utilising local resources, culture and energy to materialise. Building on this, Micaella’s practice is a combination of do-it-yourself design, experimentation and empowerment through the usage of existing materials.
