Launching in 2020, we continue to build our online archive with a discerning curatorial eye. Exciting discoveries and insights to date include: Zuzana Gombosva’s Malai, a vegan, durable bio-composite material made from coconut water that looks and feels like leather; Phoebe Quare’s plaster created from ground mussel shells; Dutch trend forecaster Li Edelkoort’s discussions on change on The Business of Fashion Podcast; a look into Material Ecology, the ground-breaking virtual exhibition at MOMA by Neri Oxman; Seetal Solanki’s Why Materials Matter, a timely manifesto on how to manufacture and design for a better future; new Chroma Plastics created from plastic waste by Jessica den Hartog; innovations by IKEA’s research and design lab Space 10; and the magical blending of biology, science and technology by Maurizio Montalti’s Officina Corpuscoli.
We are both fascinated by and supportive of promoting positive environmental materials, sustainable designs and products by amazing makers and suppliers, plus the endeavours of eco-friendly brands and businesses. We welcome new contributions to our resource, whether they be shared recommendations or direct enquiries. All new submissions will be credited appropriately on our website with links to their primary platforms to further support them.
