Huissoud adapted this machine in order to create hundreds of straight sticks from sunflower seeds and poured them in a beeswax base to maintain all of them bonded together.
The challenge of this project was to only work with materials from the company and the beeswax has been found in their roof where they have beehives. Once the base of the tables was done, she have added on top and on the bottom part of the tables sunflower seeds to remind us where the waste material was from.
