  • H5N8 stool, Emilie van Spronsen - 

    All over the world chicken meat is consumed and chicken materials are applied in countless consumer products: From shampoos to car tires, and from fireworks to pillows. However chicken material is used, it remains invisible. The seat of H5N8 Stool is made of coloured chicken feathers embedded in bio-epoxy. It seems to reveal the inside of a pillow, as the chicken feathers float in transparent epoxy. Although the shape looks light and soft, it feels rigid.
