 Burg Material – 100% Paper Experiments with Stone Paper Street art with Corn-Based Bricks BURGVELO 2.0

Dear Makers. We’re looking forward to this weekend’s Burg Annual Exhibition – also known as Jahresausstellung. MAKE. will be presenting four projects this year. Firstly, we are more than happy to present the first publication by the Burg Material collection with the title Burg Material – 100% Paper. The results of our “Material of the Month” program featuring experiments with Stone Paper and a street art competition with Corn-Based Bricks. Finally, we have been working with a group of young design students to bring our university’s BURGVELO cargo bikes to the next level. All this is probably only 0,01% of what there is to see. In short, during these two exhibition days BURG is definitely place to be for all art and design lovers. – PS: Are you far and away? Then follow us at Instagram or Twitter.
