Material Talks – Do-It-Yourself Materials

This edition is all about do-it-yourself (DIY) materials.

Date and Time: November 24, 9:00
Location: Online / Teams link

The world of materials for design is constantly evolving. Designers continually need to update themselves and find unusual lenses and novel tools to investigate this vibrant world. We have moved from traditional materials to industrial materials, and today it seems that research is moving towards DIY-Materials to design original, sustainable and low-tech material experiences. We will focus on the definition and boundary conditions of this approach to materials for design. Feel free to join: from materials to DIY-Materials, a research path in the field of design.

Speaker: Dr. Valentina Rognoli (Politecnico di Milano)
