Moving Materials - The Archives

You’ve come to the right place to find everything on our Moving Materials travelling exhibitions, seminars, master classes, partners, participants, individual materials exhibited and now the new digital expo.

All this information will support our philosophy of open discussion on the future of materials. Products don’t just stop when they’re marketed, they have a lifecycle and sometimes find alternative uses. Be in on the ground floor when creative minds find sustainable solutions.

The Material Sense travelling exhibition was supported by PROUD, or People Researchers Organisations Using Design for co-creation and innovation. A European project that aims to make Europe a better place. PROUD brings designers together with public organisations, businesses and user communities, to experience the added value of design while working on innovative solutions for today’s world.

Material Sense designed and developed the overall concept of Moving Materials. This includes the travelling expo’s held since 2012. They were responsible for the design and co-development of the 3-D printing and laser-cutting master classes. Now Material Sense also continues the curatorship of the follow-up virtual exhibition in Eindhoven (NL).
