For years we have been accustomed to the use of polluting and resource-limited materials, seeing them as practical, useful, and time-saving. However, the habit of the
throwaway practice has led to pollution, sharp reductions in key raw materials, and numerous environmental problems.
Materialized aims to surprise and sensitize visitors to new and extraordinarily
valid alternatives to plastic and other polluting materials.
The exhibition features a showcase of natural raw materials, biomaterials,
innovative techniques and green design, to discover the promising prospects of the
furniture industry through the eyes and projects of some of the best talents and materials researchers from all over the world.
