For this year’s Wintersession platform MAKE. is collaborating with materials researcher Garðar Eyjólfsson. Garðar is known for bringing together contextual, material and narrative research in his work as a means to explore & translate zeitgeist topics. We know Garðar from the Iceland University of the Arts (Burg Partner University) where he is the program director of the MA Design: Explorations & Translations program.

In this Conflicted Matter workshop we will explore (energy) industries in Halle locally through the critical lens of multiple narratives in order to seek out, document and embrace new possibilities between humans, technology, culture and the environment.

Initiated by platform MAKE. – Prof. Aart van Bezooijen, Ulrike Mäder, Lorenz Ebersbach

Material of the Month: ThermHex Honeycomb Panels

· by 29. November 2018

We are excited to demonstrate ThermHex Honeycomb Panels as Material of the Month. These next generation materials have a few promising qualities compared to solid panels (such as wood). The inner honeycomb structure provides the material both lightness and structural stability. The open (airy) structure and translucency of the material goes well in combination with (colored) light. Finally, the whole panel is made of a single polypropylene material, a thermoplastic which is recyclable and easy to (heat) transform.

Kick-Off Workshop this Tuesday: From 13.00 – 18.00 we are exploring its construction-lightness, light-translucency, heat-transformation and gather ideas for joints/connections with other materials. Students from all departments are welcomed to join us in getting hands-on with these ThermHex honeycomb panels.

Get your own (free) material samples for experimentation at the Burg Material collection.
