And of course Last but by no means least – the wonderful Benjamin Hubert on A Materials Driven production process.

A few points;

WHY make something? Consciousness of design – make it because its better, it helps push forward the environmental benefit, using less material and more function

LIGHTWEIGHT : By the reduction of weight the easier and lighter it is to transport. lighter carbon footprint

Recontextualising materials into new forms – find new uses for materials. push boundaries and experiment without compromising performance.
