This course will explore new, innovative and alternative materials that are emerging in the field of architecture, interior design and industrial design.
The course is intended to inspire, delight and challenge every designer’s notion of what materials are available on the market and how they can be used on projects.
Designers will see unique materials as well as familiar ones, and learn how they can be used in unexpected ways, as well as how to source, utilize and combine them.
These materials will be examined in the context of current trends in both the global design industry as well as popular culture, taking into account sustainability, advances in technology, globalism and human emotion.
