Come and discover our organic and performative materials developed through a close collaboration with fungal mycelium, as well as other disruptive technologies at FIBRE FIXED – Composites in Design at Design Museum Gent. The exhibition will present a wide range of design projects involving composites, including a selection of projects by Officina Corpuscoli and MOGU. The show focuses on developments of the past five years, presenting the breakthroughs that can be expected in the years to come. The curators, Ignaas Verpoest and Lut Pil, examine the use of composites in design in a context shaped by social challenges such as climate change, ecological impact, sustainability, mobility, the ageing of the population and digitisation.
