Just Bones focuses on developing a strong, natural material from animal bones. The bones are ground and their various qualities used to develop and create a material that is similar in strength to MDF. Today, a large proportion of animal carcasses are disposed of after slaughtering, thereby wasting valuable raw materials like bones. Just Bones is an example of how various opportunities are hidden in our immediate environment. By exploring familiar materials from different perspectives, new opportunities for utilisation can be found.
