moving materials at luxembourg

This year, Moving Materials will display the exhibition at our partner country Luxembourg for the first time. At ‘Forum Da Vinci’ visitors can enjoy the collection that has grown since 2012, from the 25th of April until the 22nd of May 2014.

Marjan van Aubel designed an innovative addition: a closet that acts like a battery charger. The charging technology is based on the photosynthesis of plants. The designer constructed a photovoltaic layer of solar cells in each piece of tableware (glasses). The generated power can be used to charge many products, from mobiles to light sources. Other additional projects are the ‘Weld Bag’ by Joris de Groot and ‘Changeables’ by Eva Pannecoucke.

rematerialize the future on display

Tickle your senses at the new edition of “Rematerialize the Future!” a new edition as part of Moving Materials. Explore the wonderful, weird and innovative materials, brought to you by Material Sense for PROUD! In this edition you can among others see the ‘Hemp Cushions’ from Viktoria Verbrugge, the ‘Cellular Loop’ chair from Anke Bernotat and a cabinet made from ‘NewspaperWood’ by Mieke Meijer and Design Label Vij5.

In this exhibition, Material Sense distincts three categories: Revalue is about the reuse of ingredients, and also revalues the use of old and sometimes forgotten production techniques and local materials, such as hemp. Remind shows alternative design solutions, inspired by nature. Refine consists of lighter, but stronger, materials, where less is needed for a better result.

Come and marvel at these beautiful materials during the ‘Maakbar’ event in Kortrijk. The exhibition is located in the ‘Buda Factory’ on the first floor from November 1st till December 8th 2013. And is open for visitors on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 14:00 hour till 18:00 hour and on Sundays from 11:00 hour till 18:00 hour. Feel free to step by and be inspired, entrance is free!
