Material Consequences theme at this year’s London Design festival produced the best variety of new materials at the show so far. The focus was to find new sustainable and natural materials. The outcome was a great variety in especially plant-based solutions.
Plastic was nominated as a material of the year highlighting the biggest challenge it offers at the moment for material designers. Many big brands have now included banning the use of the most damaging single-use plastics now or near future.
But, instead of reuse the real solution to avoid destroying the planet is to find totally new alternative materials.
