ONE MATERIAL, ONE PRODUCT
Design & Sustainability:
– LB Dr. Sascha Peters
Nowadays many end products are made from a combination of different plastic groups. This often improves the performance of the goods, but makes recycling difficult or impossible.
Which products, that are now made of different materials, can be made from one material or… can you come up with alternatives and new product typologies from one material?
You pick a material group from the BASF plastic families that are presented at the BASF Creation Center and design a product that is relevant. Material groups: Ultramid, Ultrason, Elastollan.
The project research and cooperation project by Prof. Ineke Hans in the context of her Climate Change projects (CCC / ECCC) and the BASF Creation Center.
Presentable prototypes, documentation and a short film should be ready by mid January. The aim is to present these with BASF at a fair in 2022.
