Abstract

The past decade has seen a turning point in our relationship with materials, from design to manufacturing, with materials gradually reclaiming their central role in the creative process and beginning to dictate form rather than simply adapt to it.The exhibition explores the power of materials, which use the sense of touch to convey emotion and energy. It draws on the so-called ​“neo-materialist” movement, which reasserts the centuries-old beliefs that materials have their own force and exude an energy that people can genuinely feel.

Abstract

Ten years ago, the designer Hella Jongerius began a research project for the Swiss furniture company Vitra to study the properties and possibilities of colours, textures, finishes and materials. This long-term project has resulted in the Vitra Colour & Material Library, which is dedicated to the establishment and further development of an intelligent system of colours, materials and textiles that make it easy to create inspiring environments in offices, homes and public spaces. Hella Jongerius describes her method of research and the application of its results to the Vitra product portfolio.
