Sustainable design: contradictio in terminis?


Materialism - Studio Drift
Ruud Balk

Design is a materialistic phenomenon. And that’s a challenge, as good design today has to be responsible. Hence designers focus more and more on different ways to produce and use assets, like re-using old- or developing new - sustainable - materials.

They experiment with new (or old) production techniques, they play with scenarios for the future, and question practices from the past. The exhibition CIRCULAR> MATERIALISTS. shows how both accomplished labels and starting designers tackle the fundamentally contradictory theme of sustainable design.
