Project update – The Future of Living Materials in media


The Project The Future of Living Materials is coming to an end. But ArtEZ Future Makers is already thinking about a possible follow up research project.
This project on sustainable, innovative materials has been getting a lot of attention in the media the past few weeks.

  • CLICKnl, the knowledge and innovation agenda of the creative industry, has conducted a number of interviews to show the breadth of research and design in the creative industry, and how this contributes to social issues. They also interviewed Danielle Bruggeman about the Model Sector and specifically about the project ‘The Future of Living Materials’ from the Artez Center of Expertise Future Makers.

Daniëlle Bruggeman is Professor of Fashion at ArtEZ. From the Fashion Professorship, research is done into the current challenges of the fashion system. “We have completely lost where our materials come from, and what raw materials they are made of.”
