Synthetic by nature
This exhibition, which is linked to the SIM Nanoforce project FlaxPreComp, shows more than 50 objects (tables, chairs, ski's, bikes and cars, ...), made out of flax and hemp composites, designed and produced by designers and companies all over the world. Prof. Em. Ignaas Verpoest (KULeuven MTM) was involved in the selection of the pieces and in composing the exhibition.
It is the first time that the potential of flax and hemp composites in very different applications is put forward.
The exhibition can be visited between April 3rd and April 26th, 2015 in the Design Museum in Ghent.
On April 2nd during the vernissage, different lectures on the theme 'Designing with Composites' were organized.
