London – The Future Laboratory will explore the materials of the future with a dedicated exhibition during London Design Festival 2018.
This week, London becomes a campus for thought-provoking installations as the London Design Festival returns to the capital. Located in the heart of the Shoreditch Design Triangle is The Future Laboratory’s Elder Street office, which will play host to an exhibition exploring how future materials will transform product design.
Inspired by the findings of our Material Far Futures report, The Future Laboratory’s courtyard will feature visuals from our collaboration with Studio Brasch. In addition, the ActiveAir footwear project will demonstrate the potential to filter air at ground level through the soles of our shoes, while Tina Gorjanc’s Phylogenetic Atelier will consider the ethical implications of bringing back extinct animals as a source of rare materials.
The event will take place from 20–23 September at 26 Elder Street, London E1 6BT, home to The Future Laboratory. In the meantime, keep an eye on our Need to Know for daily updates straight from London Design Festival 2018.
