Sabine Marcelis

Now design weeks, festivals and trade fairs have been removed from the agenda, the design community has lost the possibility to showcase its product portfolio and innovations In Real Life.

Entering this new reality a model needs to be found to serve the needs of a new generation icons to make a living. What is the new framework, the practical realities and ethics of creative practice now, and what are the futures made possible by the global 'reset' which is currently underway? Together with museum director and founder Jeroen van Mastrigt of museum Nowhere, star designer Sabine Marcelis, David Mahyari, CEO of natural stone company Solid Nature and artist Victor Sonna we talk about the world before COVID 19 and how we can still experience material tactility in a virtual driven society, a new reality due to COVID 19.

FRAME founder and director Robert Thiemann will lead and moderate this event.
