This project was created for the Biodesign Challenge competition under the prompt “The Future Will Be Grown.” With this began the research of growth and decay, how we use earth’s natural resources, and the life cycle of consumer products. The idea that a material could be “grown,” and therefore use a regenerative resource rather than deplete a non-renewable resource, is what sparked the creation of Kichin.
