Material-Minded Design

The Intersection of Trend, Sustainability and the Materials We Use

At Triennale and Salone del Mobile Milano, Materially and Material ConneXion will re-unite sharing their expertise on the interconnections between materials, trends, and design.

Material-Minded Design: the Intersection of Trend, Sustainability and the Materials We Use questions how materials can give concrete answers starting from trends and design directions, in compliance with all-round sustainability criteria.

Materials manage to translate trends and design directions into final products, both from an aesthetic and language point of view, and in terms of performance and sustainability features. The conference tells how this transition takes place, from socio-cultural tendencies to design directions, to translation into reality through matter.

Talks will be conducted by Anna Pellizzari, Head of Research – Materially and Jennifer Gumpert, VP of Business Operations – Material ConneXion


Materially and Material ConneXion will also be present from April 18 to 23 at Salone del Mobile of Milan (Hall 18, Booth E16-18 / D15-17). 

Here will be showcased a selection of materials from Material ConneXion’s Library, the largest archive of innovative and sustainable materials with more than 10,000 materials from over 75 industries.
