SofiaHagen x Studio Marmi come togther to exhibit: HEMPLA,  a meditation furniture set that creates a sanctuary to relax and meditate. Following a 2-year R&D process, organic hemp is turned into 3D Printing pellets bound with recycled sugar cane, to generate the HEMPLA seating. The HEMPLA rugs are handwoven by local artisans  and are produced using un-dyed recycled hemp fibres and wool. A variation of the seats is made of 3D printed sugar with integrated lighting by Studio Waldemeyer, programmed to follow the user’s circadian rhythm.
