SORRY WE ARE TRYING


BIOMATERIALS IN PRACTICE






The (visual) research is an ungoing archive feeding the exhibition formats (to come) with inspirational references. This is a starting point, mainly based on the designers who are showing during Sorry we are Trying. Biomaterials in Practice. To get a better understanding of how the designers work and where their products come from, we sort them into various stages of the value chain (top to bottom) : inspired by nature - new environments - cultivations - fabrication of fruit waste - fabrication of plants - production based on material research - introducing materials of the agricultural industry into fashion - laboratory design









The archive is a growing collection of images, reports, events, articles, quotes.

Please notify us if any of the links becomes inactive or redirected. Kindly share suggestions with us, too!
