Christien Meindertsma Composites In Design

In the wake of the exhibition Van bakeliet tot composiet (From Bakelite to Composite, 2002-2003), Composites in Design presents a wide range of design projects involving composites. The exhibition focuses on the 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.
