Designers, scientists & engineers.Join Our Team
We believe in a future where animal products are
There are those who wish the world was different, and those who work to change it every day. At Modern Meadow we are working tirelessly to see this new future materialize; one where humans make the material and the animals roam free.
Our team unites smart, passionate, and caring people who innovate new materials to excite customers and do better for the planet. Biology and materials science are our foundation, engineering and analytics our strength, and design our core. We're unlocking the capabilities of nature to solve our biggest sustainability challenges.
Design + Biology + Engineering
We spent the 20th century mastering chemistry to turn oil into high-performance, tunable synthetic materials. We learned how proteins fold, we sequenced our own genome and learnt to read and write with DNA. Now we’re using those tools to build the high-performing, biological materials of the 21st century.
We’re harnessing the collective power of design, biology and engineering to biofabricate a new material age.
Design features throughout our process, from organism design and process design to materials design and design collaboration with our partners.
We’re using living cells to grow nature’s materials. Today we make bioleather materials called ZoaTM from a process entirely free of animals.
Our cell engineering optimizes collagen production while materials science and engineering organizes our fiber structure to deliver an array of advanced materials that can be combined with any other material, natural or manmade.
