In 2010 the Caribbean island of Curaçao was hit by Hurricane Thomas, destroying fifty per cent of the island’s coral reefs. The coral has struggled to grow back since then, meaning a loss of habitat for thousands of marine species. Kas’I Korel is a device designed to kick-start the struggling ecosystem, providing a temporary shelter for fish that will in turn generate algae and encourage coral polyps to grow. The title means ‘coral house’ in Papiamentu.
Born and raised on the beautiful Caribbean island of Curaçao Amenda knew at a young age she wanted to help her island unlock its full potential. With this mission in mind, at 19 years old, Amenda moved to the Netherlands to study design at the Design Academy Eindhoven. During her studies Amenda learned that she is a pragmatic, functional and social designer. Her designs always aim to solve or fulfill a socially relevant necessity. With her 2 graduation projects she aims to ignite the journey of unraveling Curaçao’s full potential.morePortfolio
