Biyomap was created in 2009 with the idea to make the shipping, transportation and storage of pieces of art a lot easier and more time efficient, and thereby cost-effective.
The creator of Biyomap, artist Yolanda Philippens, had been annoyed for years with the piles of trash that remained after art fairs. The dreamt about the solution.
Yolanda about this: ‘I am actually always concerned about how I can make things easier and more sustainable. At every art fair I was surprised to see the huge mountain of bubble wrap that remains as waste. But just like every artist, I was just enjoying my craft and I didn’t have the ambition or the money to do something about it myself. An investor made my dream a reality and we could start working on the execution of the Biyomap.
To simplify ordering Biyomaps, the creation of a Biyomap-Webshop was a logical consequence.
Nicer, reusable and 100% recyclable
The Biyomap is cheaper than bubble wrap and is 100% recyclable.
‘During the testing of the folders, fellow artists and I found out that they also provide better protection than bubble wrap. My initial goal was to create a nice folder that people would want to keep. And we succeeded in that’.
