In this short video, Victoria explains some of the more uncommon materials being used at the cutting edge of design to support the continued drive for sustainability in all areas of our lives. Fish skin, old magazines, nuts and even rice …………

Designers across the globe are trying to reduce the ecological effect of their work, architects and interior experts are choosing to look to new realms & frontiers in search of new, sustainable materials.
