Retrospect of Future Materials

22 June 2016 by Communication

On Friday 17 June, Future Materials took place. This event combined the final symposium of Light.Touch.Matters with the inaugural lecture of Prof. Kaspar Jansen on Emerging Materials. The symposium and inaugural lecture were streamed live, and can be looked back via the site.

More than 150 (inter)national visitors came to the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of TU Delft to attend the symposium and lecture. They witnessed project coordinator Erik Tempelman closing the European research programme Light.Touch.Matters.

Eric Biermann showed the steps in the development of the prototypes, Pim Groen explained more about flexible and transparent OLEDs. Innovation expert Roberto Verganti closed the session with a reflection on the design process. Note: Roberto Verganti will be opening the academic year of TU Delft on Monday 5 September this year. 

In the central hall of the faculty, the exhibition of Light.Touch.Matters projects gained much attention with its working prototypes. In the Aula, after the inaugural lecture, demonstrators from Kaspar Jansen’s research area Emerging Materials were exhibited. You could see the working prototype of an umbrella that emits light when it rains, and materials made of mycelium.

To look back the symposium and inaugural lecture, you can visit the Future Materials site.
