We are all aware of future themes, they range from sustainability, circularity, saving energy and healthy environments to smart solutions and conceptual interiors (to name but a few!). One question that the professionals responsible for putting these themes into action must answer is: which materials will be vital for these themes to thrive?
MaterialDistrict selected 100 materials for the special exhibition “My Modern Materials,” including carpet made of palm leaves, tiles made of oyster shells, engineered wood, cork textile and bamboo composites.
They showcased new resources produced from items once called “waste” such as materials made of coffee grounds and acoustic felt made of recycled denim.
There were digital solutions like 3D printed materials, smart interactive materials and healthy bio-based material sources.
All materials were selected exclusively for interiors and design related professionals and have functional properties as well as aesthetic ones. All visitors were invited to touch, feel and experience the materials that matter in every sense.
