On designing with bio-composites

On designing with bio-composites

BALANCING ACTS IN DESIGNING WITH HIGHLY INNOVATIVE MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES.

Design Museum Gent and KU Leuven asked us to be guest speakers at the opening of the exhibition on biocomposite materials, featuring one of our designs; the Be.e scooter. The exhibition ‘Kunststof natuurlijk’ is an inspiring display of new uses of sustainable natural composites. More importantly it aims to inspire a broader use of this awesome renewable material, which up until now is mostly (yet very sporadically) applied in highly specific components in the automotive industry.
