Seaweed provides interior design inspiration
In addition to its more practical benefits as a nutritional supplement, cooking ingredient and alternative fuel source, seaweed has also been cited again and again as an inspiration for various pieces of art, from large-scale installations to delicate pieces of jewelry. Recently, one innovative interior designer even capitalized in this visually interesting sea vegetable in a new design.
Nir Meiri is a designer based in Tel Aviv who is renowned for incorporating intriguing and often under-appreciated natural materials into everyday items, according to GizMag. For his "Marine Light" lamp, Meiri artfully draped pieces of seaweed over a metal frame.
"Ancient cultures have appreciated and utilized seaweeds for different uses. Today, seaweeds are cultivated and harvested on a commercial scale, as a result of a growing interest driven by environmental concerns," writes Meiri, adding that his lamp "plays on the tension between the artistic and the commercial."
While Meiri has certainly developed an interesting application for this abundant plant, not everyone may share his taste in interior decorating. However, when it comes to using seaweed in a culinary setting, this sea vegetable can definitely introduce a welcome flavor to a wide range of dishes. Seagreens® The Mineral Salt and Culinary Ingredient, for example, can improve the nutritional value of a meal while enhancing the tastes you already love.
Seagreens® seaweed is wild-harvested in the Scottish Outer Hebrides, and contains high amounts of all-natural vitamins, minerals and trace elements. As well as adding this nutritious sea vegetable to your favorite meals, you can also consume it daily in Food Capsule form.
