Laura Ferriere

21st century life in the woods

Prizes: Melkweg Prize, Keep an Eye Grant Prize

Department: Man and Leisure


Laura Ferriere has investigated the wilderness and its impact on our lives. A deep contact with nature frees us from our responsibilities, while forcing us to respect the course of the seasons and the limitations of our bodies. It is essential to our mental health, for developing an accurate and personal view on our lives and our place in society. Therefore, she has developed a product range that enables a temporary stay in nature, to help us reach a spiritual state of ‘wildness’. The products are meant for wild camping and provide basic mental and physical comfort.
