Project Description

MOVING MATERIALS — INNOVATIVE MATERIALS DURING THE LUXEMBOURG DESIGN BIENNALE ‘DESIGN CITY 2014’

Tickle your senses at the travelling and growing exhibition Moving Materials! The organization Material Sense displays the materials and products in five different categories. Although this classification by no means offers a complete index of material innovations, it may help to put things in perspective.

The five categories are:
— New insights into repair and renewal.
— Ingenious and new manufacturing methods.
— The affinity people feel for products and how well-being improves in the right surroundings.
— Possibilities strong lightweight materials offer for everyday use.
— Bringing down energy use employing solar and kinetic energy.

This exhibition shows new technology that mingles with familiar products as well as traditional materials used innovatively. Explore the impact of new material innovations and methodologies on our society. Experience the future of materials today!

The exhibition Moving Materials travelled to Luxembourg for the first time. It was shown at the ‘Forum Da Vinci’, from the 25th of April until the 22nd of May 2014.
