Living Matters - Design United talkshow

Wednesday 21 October 2020
We may be living in a Digital Age but we continue to inhabit a material world and physical artefacts still play an important role in design research.

Consequently the emergence of new biological materials – living matters – present a fascinating challenge for designers. How might emerging materials help designers create products that digest, or integrate and blend with our human bodies and with our natural environment? How might living materials allow products to function in new and efficient ways? Might these emerging materials prompt us to re-evaluate ‘life’ itself?
