Fake is the new real
In the past 20 years the curated material exhibitions have been invited by universities, fairs, seminars and events all over the world. In the Netherlands, London, Stockholm, Brussels, Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Melbourne, Russia, Sao Paulo, Tel Aviv, Toronto, Basel or Dubai, and have been an inspiration and tool for millions of visitors. The content and themes changed during the years; from conceptual artistic project related materials, to smart interactive materials and mock-ups, to sustainable, biobased, biofabricated and recycled materials nowadays. Subjects like material innovation related to water, wood, energy, prototyping, biomimicry, plastic, concrete, (vegan)leather, metals or textile are a few topics we highlighted. Always inspiring, innovative, experimental and challenging with a focus on the future to make a better, sustainable and beautiful environment in architecture and design.
