Barcelona design startup developing bio-based and circular materialsNaifactory is a Barcelona design startup developing bio-based and circular materials.

Their “Reolivar” material reinvents discarded olive pits turning them into lamps, toys and kitchenware. Olive pits are made of cellulose and lignin, two of the most abundant organic materials in the world. In Spain olives are ubiquitous, which is how founder Catazine became inspired in repurposing the pits.

Olive pits if not discarded are usually crushed and burnt to produce biofuel, however biofuel still emits GHG emissions when burnt. Whereas Naifactory aims to crush the pits and create a variety of economical and moldable textures.

The bio-compostable materials are unique and compostable. The designers hope to eventually produce a line of furniture and eventually launch their store
