An installation by an artist and experimental designer Megan McGlynn is set on display in Glasshouse Helsinki, a retail environment in the center of Helsinki/Finland. The main material of the installation is from Suominen’s sustainable product portfolio: biodegradable nonwovens made of cellulosic fibers.

The installation is called Geo Pilvi and consists of 8 folded structures that hang from the ceiling of Glasshouse Helsinki. The main material used in the installation is 100% cellulosic and responsibly produced nonwovens by Suominen Corp., Helsinki.

The cellulosic fibers are carefully opened and distributed on a web and pure water is used to induce mechanical interlocking to provide an optimal level of strength without any chemical binders or other harmful substances. Water is circulated in the process to minimize the environmental impact and water consumption in the process.

The installation is exhibited in Glasshouse Helsinki from May 27, 2021 onwards.
