She uses it for design installations and product design like lampshades. Have a look at the sensational lighting it disperses and all the different application that are possible. Seaweed is fast-growing and its function is to clean the ocean, but Julia has been fascinated by it and seen the beauty in it if used as a material or for interior design applications.
