Clint, one of the materials that is part of the sample, is the result of the collaboration between Girbau and Elisava, created through textile waste that remains in the filters of the drying machines and that has multiple applications.
The second exhibition of Materials Narratives has already been inaugurated at the Enric Bricall Library in Elisava, in which a concept of interaction between materials, related publications and users has been implemented, where the physical samples of materials can be touched and interpreted.
In this second sample, the four tribes of materials classified as Circular, Smart & advanced, Cultural and Basic are completed, and the student is allowed to pick up, touch and feel the samples to make mood boards on the library tables.
We can also find Clint, the material created as a result of the collaboration between Girbau and Elisava, which has a special place in the show. This new recyclable material is created from waste from drying machines and it could reduce the use of plastic materials to produce pen drives, for stationery or packaging. This and other materials can also be seen these days at the CentroCentro ‘Materia Gris’ exhibition in Madrid.
More about Materials Narratives
Materials Narratives is a platform aimed at researchers, teachers, companies and students, which is based on experimentation, design and engineering to innovate through materials. The platform investigates in an applied way how the materials in our environment can be understood in a transversal way from a social, cultural, sustainable and technological perspective.
Materials Narratives seeks to provoke the interaction between materials, publications and users, where physical samples can be touched and interpreted and books of materials can be consulted. This space serves students and teachers, so that they can project creatively through materials and help us understand the past, transform the present and shape the future. The temporary exhibitions, related to current challenges, complement this vision starring the materials, showing everything from the student experimentation to new products.
The Materials Narratives platform also offers services aimed at companies and organizations, accompanying them in training and innovation through materials, detecting and developing new opportunities through different collaboration formats such as: research projects, training capsules, materials development own or the selection of commercial materials for the different sectors.
