Where: Habitare Fair 2017 , Block Area
When: 13. -17.09.2017

Aalto-yliopiston CHEMARTS  yhdistää biomateriaalien tutkimuksen ja muotoilun. Yhteistyön tärkein tavoite on innostaa eri alojen opiskelijat ja tutkijat kehittämään uusia ideoita liittyen selluloosan ja  muiden biomateriaalien hyödyntämiseen. Kesällä 2017 opiskelijoiden materiaaleina olivat mm. pajunkuori, kuusenkuori, sahajauho, maa-aines, järviruoko, nanoselluloosa ja selluloosa-asetaatti. Materiaalikokeiluiden pohjalta opiskelijat kehittivät kestävän kehityksen huomioivia tuoteideoita ja konsepteja.
