Design Laboratory: Materials and Technology

28 Jun - 06 Sep 2020 / Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, CH

Ceramics dripping from a 3D printer? Clothing that helps one get up? Bacteria instead of leather for a shoe? What sounds like science fiction is already within reach. Not only in the laboratory, but also in design, material issues are more relevant today than ever due to digitization and the quest for greater sustainability. To this end, designers are increasingly working in teams with scientists from the fields of biotechnology and materials technology.
