Design with substance: Material Innovation

The quality of good design is closely related to the quality of the materials used. This starts with pollutant- and emission-free production. Material innovation is becoming a key discipline.

Material innovation is a key driver of design: it can overcome known limitations, contribute to the creation of new forms and objects, minimise carbon emissions and thus contribute to mitigating the climate crisis, and improve the well-being of the user. Sustainable approaches include the use of organic raw materials such as wood, which binds carbon dioxide during its growth process, or the reuse of locally available materials as the basic raw material for new design objects. In addition, new material developments and technical components provide previously unknown design solutions. They serve to reduce the consumption of resources, flexible expandability or simplified repair. The reduction of carbon emissions and the separation of pure materials for later recycling are decisive criteria for an environmentally friendly design and the achievement of climate goals.

The PEEL lounge chair by VANK is supported by a sinusoidal construction. The seat shell is made from recycled wood scraps, whereby curves can be integrated during the production process thanks to the innovative micro mesh technology. PEEL is a real eye-catcher that stands out thanks to its smart design and sustainable use of materials.

Ben by Stadler Form is an air humidifier and aroma diffuser. An extra-fine fragrance mist also creates the remarkably realistic illusion of an amber-coloured flame thanks to Amber LightTM. The humidification intensity is infinitely variable: from a gentle flame to a blazing fire. With Ben, a relaxing evening can be enjoyed at the touch of a button.
