Moving Materials will move on to the next location of one of our partners: Lancaster University in the UK. The subtheme of “Smart processing” will be further investigated through hands on explorations in a masterclass around Lasercutting. Designers and engineers will work with familiar and new materials to experiment with the laser manufacturing technology.
Material Sense develops this Master class in collaboration with the people of Lancaster University. We look forward to the results, which will be taken on board when the exhibition moves further to the next location!
The Moving Materials exhibition was accompanied with a seminar about sustainability and 3D printing: ‘3D print; make it – fix it – keep it!’.
Within this seminar and lively discussion, Marleen Stikker from the Waag Society addressed the topic of open source design and aspects of 3D printing. Johanna Spath from SHAPES iN PLAY made the connection of 3D printing and the role of the intuitive use by the user and designer, while Jo Meesters pictured the future use of sustainable materials..
Because of a collaboration with 3D printing event, the visitors used the opportunity to visit both events at the Apparatenfabriek. The possibilities of the different 3D printing techniques were put into perspective while focussing on sustainability opportunities.
In the afternoon, Dirk van der Kooij talked about how his products can contribute to the sustainable lifecycle – by using plastic from old refrigerators. Gaspard Bos from the Perpetual Plastic Project presented their hands on recycling process, explored during Lowlands. Plastic cups where recycled into plastic rings that were distributed among the visitors of Lowlands. Furthermore Ilko Bosman from Freedom of Creation discussed the paradigm shift from mass production to individual consumer production via 3D printers.
We look back upon an overall well-visited and inspiring day.
The Moving Materials exhibition travelled to Eindhoven to show it’s innovative materials and intriguing products during the Dutch Design Week. The exhibition is already seen by over nine thousand people within the Dutch Design Week only! Missed it? No worries, the exhibition is still open for visitors till the 20th of November.
CapitalD open innovation space, Torenallee 20, Eindhoven StrijpS. open Mon. – Fri. from 10.00 – 17.00.
seminar & workshop: 23rd of October, from 11.00 until 14.30 hr
Together with the exhibition, some specific parts within the themes ‘smart processing’ and ‘product affinity’ will be further explored and investigated in. Moving Materials presents 3D printed products that show that almost all our ideas can be materialized. How can 3D printing support more sustainable product development? From the use of biomaterials, to re-used material printed on the spot, or the addition of small repair pieces…all will be further explored and investigated during this meeting, guided by inspiring teasing lectures to spark the topic.
You can join this event on:
the 23rd of October, from 11.00 until 14.30 hr.
Entrance is free, but spaces are limited!
