Last Wednesday 30th April took place the #6 Professional Day «Case Studies» organized by Elisava Alumni at the Materfad of the Disseny HUB Barcelona.
The event was attended by Marc Folch, of Calderon-Folch-SarsanedasArquitectes, Marcela Manrique, founder of Demano, and Javier Peña, Materfad’s director. The leitmotiv of the three lectures was the materials selection in the design process.
First of all, the architect Marc Folch talked about a project that was carried out in his architecture studio in which a specific material for recovering the architectural work was used.
Afterwards, Marcela Manrique explained the origin of her project, Demano, which uses banners and other similar supports for creating handbags, reusing a product that cannot be recycled and taking advantage of the material properties.
Finally, Javier Peña explained how Masterfad offers consulting services and training to companies, professionals, universities and technological centres, in addition to facilitate the technological transference between sectors of different areas. Its technological surveillance task is useful in the detection of materials and technologies of a special sector with potentiality for being applied in another one.The presentation concluded with a guided visit, in which the samples of advanced materials of theMaterfad’scatalogue were explained.
Elisava Alumni is already planning the following meeting between professionals and Alumni,which will take place next 21th May.
