DUNGse

Dungse, the product brand born out of dung
Studio Carbon

Dungse is a concept of a product brand born out of the problem of piling dung from the 2 million cows in Nederlands. At Dungse, we use the ancient wisdom of dung and its numerous properties to make beautifully designed products for your everyday life.

Across ancient cultures, cow dung is known to have diverse properties that make it a very unique material to work with. It’s textures are known to calm children down, its atoms are known to absorb radiation, its fibers are known to regulate room temperatures and the list goes on.

Studio Carbon and Lindey Cafsia Studio joined forces to study dung and reinvent a possible future for it. We built a diverse team of industrial designers, material experts, indigenous knowledge experts and bio-phyllic designers to research and experiment extensively with dung. That is how the idea of Dungse was born.

Dungse is a brand conceptualized to help you imagine and experience a future lifestyle built out of dung. Dungse products are completely circular, sustainable and designed to perfection. We make everything, from textures floors to temperature regulating wall tiles, from incense sticks to bird houses. All our products meaningfully use one or more properties of dung and make them a viable replacement to their plastic/concrete counterparts.

To build a sustainable future we need to embrace nature in its entirety, and reinvent it through innovation. Dungse is a step in that direction.
