Human Material Loop

Founder/ CEO of Human Material Loop - material innovation.

Zsofia Kollar (she/her) is a designer, researcher, published author, the founder of Human Material Loop, a material science company focusing on the utilization of human hair for various industries, as well as a tutor at the Royal Academy of Art, the Hague. She holds a BA in architecture and design and an MA in interdisciplinary design.

I envision diverse industries collaborating to build resilient ecosystems. Collaboration fosters innovation for a sustainable future. In our work, we emphasize the power of embracing innovation and collaboration to shape a world for future generations.

Design isn’t just about making things look good or usable, or even about delight. As a designer, I believe it’s about offering a new story, challenging norms, and changing perceptions. That’s why I started Human Material Loop—to prove that people are part of the ecosystem, not above it.
