For MCBW, the Green Future Club curated the exhibition "Let's design the future" with six themed islands on sustainable materials & products. The glass pavilion is peppered with international sustainable innovations and is located at the Viktualienmarkt.
Six theme islands are each dedicated to a material stream as a source for sustainable products. Each theme island features selected materials, prototypes and products submitted by designers* to the Green Concept Award and Green Product Award.
1. „From the water“ Algae are conquering our world - as air purifiers, dyes for clothes or material for furniture.
2. „Among fungi Mycelium - acoustic panels, chairs or shoe soles will grow from the roots of fungi in the future.
3. „The second life of food“ Food scraps become furniture, glasses, clothes, shoe soles or watches.
4. „New plant world“ Natural (leftover) materials of pineapple, flowers, cactus, quartz, flax, hemp are source for clothes, room furniture, bags, sinks.
5. „Beyond wood“ Forestry by-products turned into 3D printed chairs and sustainable panels.
6. „Rethinking plastic“ Alternative uses and new sources for record players, panels, 3D printed tennis balls, scented room dividers.
Nils Bader, founder and director of the Green Future Club, will lead the opening of the exhibition on 14 May and introduce selected female designers behind the projects. The event will take place live from 2-4pm at the Viktualienmarkt around the Glass Pavilion.
The glass pavilion can be visited all day at the Viktualienmarkt (Frauenstraße 8) during MCBW from May 14 to 22.
