We are showcasing some of our favorite bio-based samples from the material library, experiments with hemp-lime bio composites, recipes for do-it-yourself materials from the BITZ fablab, and mycelium-based design panels to improve interior acoustics. All this comes together with a mind relieving movie and selected books on the beauty of bio-based materials inspiring a more sustainable future.
