Material Vision is not yet another materials exhibition. This biannual event has an exclusive focus on a design oriented audience in order to push the opportunities of new materials and technologies in product development.
This year's exhibition comes with a conference including lectures by recognized designers such as Tobias Adami (Hannes Wettstein), Ville Kokkonen (Artek), and Damian O'Sullivan (presenting his solar lampion). Rumours say Chris Lefteri himself -- known for his "Materials for Inspirational Design" book series -- will be moderating the conference! Further, 30 companies will party hard after receiving the prestigious Design Plus Award, a recognition for products that show leadership in innovative applications of materials.
As if this is not enough, behind this year's Material Vision event there is actually a bigger fish called Nanotech + Material Week, which is clustering Nanotechnologieforum Hessen, NanoSolutions, Material Vision and Chemical Nanotechnology Talks, forming an international platform for nanotechnologies and new materials in Europe.
The Nanotech + Material Week kicked off today (20-23 November). Material Vision takes place this Thursday and Friday in Frankfurt, Germany. We considered this material hotspot is definitely worth checking out, so stay tuned for our upcoming galleries.
