Palett is a conceptual audio device that allows users to discover music through a new method of music categorisation defined by a family of tokens.

Bagasse Plates

Bagasse plates is a concept derived from the material exploration of bagasse, which are sugar cane fibres. Its proposed practical application is to redefine a completely sustainable production process carried out within the Hawker Centre itself, using materials and tools that can all be found there too. The plates are made from leftover bagasse, usually left behind from sugar cane juice stalls. These fibres are mixed with water and are then grounded down by a household blender. Excess water are then sieved off and the fine fibres are then molded by heat and pressure by a custom-made steel press into a biodegradable plate, which are to be used by hawker centre patrons.
