The Metamorphosis of Materials
— For a Mobile and Reversible Future
Welcome to the space and functions hybridisation era, where people and things are able to self-destroy and regenerate and constantly live new lives.
Moving and evolving materials, grown as living beings rather than industrial products. Furniture able to change shape and function.
Following the tracks left by snails and created by their vicious film, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have recreated Phema, an adhesive substance able to seal very strongly but at the same time to reverse only adding a little water.
“Borrowing from nature only what we can give back” will be our mantra for the future. And it’s actually what Aborigines in Australia already used to do some thousands years ago.
