In collaboration with Material Sense, the European Economic and Social Committee and deBuren in present the international travelling exhibition ' Rematerialize', concentrating on the rematerialization of products. This new exhibition by Material Sense focuses on quality materials made of familiar, ordinary things that have undergone serious revaluation. These materials have nothing in common with the exhausted recycled products of the past. On the contrary they have been ‘rematerialized' into a better product. According to Material Sense, this strong trend in the way new materials are developing raises great expectations for the future.
More than 50 samples of ‘rematerialization' will be set out for the curious to touch and see. Each sample is accompanied by visual aids to explain the background of the materials and their uses. The exhibition divides its range of strange and wonderful samples into four categories. Self-healing materials can be found under the heading of ‘Recover'. ‘Refine' shows lighter and stronger materials. ‘Remind' brings together materials that add emotional value through light, projection or other technology. Original revaluated and reused ingredients along with natural alternatives for materials are exhibited in the ‘Revalue' category.
The exhibition will be opened on May 2nd, at 18:00h, in the presence of Anna Maria Darmanin (vice-president EESC), Luca Jahier (EESC president of group III), and deBuren.
An introduction to the exhibition will be given by Simone de Waart (Material Sense).
