Unique creative workshop!

"Materials for our future"

workshop by Simone de Waart – Material Sense & Ilse van Kesteren
Imagine, experts are ringing the alarm bells: raw oil is really getting out of stock now! The Big 8 ministers decided to abandon plastics as a material for consumer products all over the world. In the year 2020 plastics will be illegal. What are our options left? How will our products look like?
