Design collective Dutch Invertuals and research studio Franklin Till embark on an epic material exploration that is showcased at Milan Design Week. Challenging the flexibility, adaptability and response rates of man-made materials, Dutch Invertuals focuses on sustainability. The goal is to determine how these objects, some of which have "decayed into the Earth's crust," can be mined and repurposed.
The results of the material exploration are brought to the public via the 'Mutant Matter' exhibition that highlights design-forward objects by ten creatives. Adapting to a time where the boundary between man-made and natural environments is blurred, Dutch Invertuals seeks to point-out sustainable ways through which we can mine potential resources for use in the future.
