Material Future

From "material shapes product" to "product shapes material" - the project " Material Future" shows notionally how Designers' working methods could be influenced by the scientific progress in medicine and bio technology. Human cells would not only serve for cultivating tissues and organs - Further: genetic alterations within the DNA could specifically modify a material’s properties. Resources with suitable characteristics would not have to be found, the designer would simply program the sprouting material accordingly.
