Design Laboratory: Materials and Technology

Ceramics dripping from a 3D printer? Clothing that helps one get up? Bacteria instead of leather for a shoe? What sounds like science fiction is already within reach. Not only in the laboratory, but also in design, material issues are more relevant today than ever due to digitization and the quest for greater sustainability. To this end, designers are increasingly working in teams with scientists from the fields of biotechnology and materials technology. Together they are exploring the future with unprecedented ideas and solutions. The exhibition presents promising projects in the field of sustainable materials, robotics, and 3D printing. It is also open to the public as a discussion forum: the design laboratory enables visitors to observe, touch, discuss, try out, and experiment!
