ZoaTM Prototype Biofabricated Wall Panels, 2019
Zoa biofabricated materials are inspired by leather and will release the designer from the material constraints of traditional leather. Future Zoa™ biofabricated materials will be made at scale by engineering yeast cells to produce collagen protein, the main building block of skin. This prototype suggests new possibilities for the production, performance, and function of material alternatives.
