A selection of the results from the course “Designing Materials Experiences” (link of the course page to add) at Politecnico di Milano, School of Design, was presented in “The Materials Farm” by Materfad. The materials were presented in a talk and are now showcased in an exhibition at the Design Hub Barcelona, from 26/06/2017 to 21/09/2017. These actions were part of the program of the FADfest 2017, the biggest festival about Design and Arts in Barcelona.
The selected projects are the results of an on-going research on DIY materials, in the scope of unfolding their qualities and aesthetics, and novel practices and scenarios around them. Most of these self-produced and open materials are made from waste resources and have social and sustainable purposes.
