'The Coral' is an indoor micro-algae farm designed by Hyunseok An to rebuild a relationship with algae, critical for sustainability yet less appreciated, in our everyday lives.

This wall-mounted bioreactor proposes a daily ritual for algae consumption for a sustainable alternative of nutritional diets. The Coral also highlights algae’s environmental benefits through a symbol of revitalizing coral from ‘coral bleaching.’ Besides, the representation augments an indoor experience, allowing us to welcome the algae farm at home for aesthetic purposes. The Coral suggests a socially acceptable way of bringing algae, which helps us take one step forward to a better sustainable way of living.

"Algae are some of the most efficient carbon dioxide scrubbers in the air, with 10 times greater CO2 fixation than terrestrial plants," explained the designer.
