The Lates: Do you want to see the future?

with Chris Lefteri

Book online through Eventbrite

Story-telling and how materials will change the way we feel.

What if the word material was replaced by the word matter? Would that change the way designers approach the creative process? What happens when we find information about new matter and how can we creatively interpret the information and apply it. Innovation in materials and design continues to evolve, coming from many factors but one of the most valuable is in the interpretation of information and challenging the traditional attitude to which materials are up for grabs to design from. 

Traditional, new and future materials have become part of mainstream design world in creating stories. Industrial, furniture, interior, textiles and fashion designers have moved far beyond the traditional method of just specifying materials but to actually developing new materials that create compelling stories. This talk will combine some of the latest materials ‘stories’ and future trends that will change future stories.
