What Matter_s 2.0

During 2019 we are implementing the project What Matter_s 2.0, in which we bring designers together with medium- and large-size manufacturing companies in the region that do research and development – with the task of developing new materials out of the companies’ waste/residue.

Last year, SPOKArt & Science Initiative and Form/Design Center gave 10 design studios the opportunity to collaborate with 10 leading materials researchers in Skåne to jointly experiment, research and illustrate new materials that are being developed right now. The results of these collaborations were presented in the joint exhibition What Matter_s at Dutch Design Week 2018 and then in an expanded exhibition at Form/Design Center. The project was a huge hit so we’ve decided to do a second edition!

Open call: Designers/studios

During the period 1 Apr – 1 May 2019 it is possible for designers/studios with companies registered in Skåne, Halland, Småland or Blekinge to apply to participate in the project. From the applicants, a maximum of 16 designers/studios will be offered the opportunity to participate in a matchmaking event on 5 June 2019 in which the manufacturing companies will participate.
