Public Talk & Panel // Mutant Matter @Salone del Mobile 2018 – Dutch Invertuals – Milan (IT)

MUTANT MATTER is the title of this years’ edition of Dutch Invertuals at the Salone del Mobile 2018, developed by the collective in in close collaboration with FranklinTill.  In line with the exhibition, the space will host dialogues, panels and debates. Officina Corpuscoli will be on stage contributing to the discussion, on April 18, as part of the session titled WASTE: A design issue?

Should design systems be built to eliminate waste or to use it? Should ‘waste’ even figure as a design term when all materials can be considered resources? In a world of finite raw materials and abundant recyclables, household rubbish and industrial scrap are becoming increasingly interesting as material resources – how might makers and industry work together to tap into them?

Life on Earth is in constant change and transformation. By always evolving, improving and altering, humans, animals, plants and organisms are able to adapt to the ever-changing ecosystem. Today, we live in the Anthropocene era, which make us rethink or rephrase the definition of what is organic and what is man-made. We can either run the risk of alienation or embrace the future. Designers see possibilities everywhere. ‘Mutant Matter’ shows and discusses the potential of how materials can evolve and mutate to a liveable future.
