Artichair II

Thistle, also called the wild artichoke, is a plant native to the western and central Mediterranean region, where it was domesticated in ancient times. Using the top of the plant which we get from the biofuel industry, we created a new material, using thistle as the main substance. As a continuation of the Artichair case study and the Thistle Collection, we created high quality semi natural laminates, easy to mass produce, bend, cut and press, with Artichair II being the result of this study.

We believe that keeping close with the manufacturing and creative process is paramount to ensuring quality and consistency. That’ s why all Artichair products are designed and produced by KIZI DESIGN STUDIO in tight collaboration with local makers.

Artichair is a case study on the alternative use of agricultural waste.

The cardoon, also called the artichoke thistle, is a thistle-like plant native to the western and central Mediterranean region, where it was domesticated in ancient times. This project has involved the development of a new eco-material, and explored possible applications for it within product design.
