Rethinking materials

Sustainable design is not just about a product, it is also about the material. Nowadays more and more designers are starting to look for new materials; they question the way in which we use certain raw materials and, where necessary, look for more sustainable alternatives.

A different role

In this way, designers play an important role on the road to a climate-neutral society. This journey takes us to interesting places: we visit the realm of fungi, dive to the bottom of the sea and view the inside of a beer brewery.
