Marjan van Aubel and Jamie Shaw have been developing an exciting new material from waste wood. Understanding that there is 50% to 80% of timber wastage during normal manufacture, they looked at ways of incorporating waste shavings into design using bio-resin.

The earliest characteristics of our civilisation can be seen in treated bones. Bone is a material that has historically been used to make tools jewelry and other products. Today bone is viewed as waste; it is crushed and burnt. Michiel and Jetske are giving bone another lease of life by highlighting its beauty. These images show a collection of shapes made from cow bone. With this research they examine the characteristics of the material and explore its usability. Searching for a way to use the

Blended material by Tom van Soest Second life for old construction material. His blender grinds glass, bricks, concrete and even entire sinks into powder. By baking the powders in a specific mix at a high temperature, new stone-like materials are created with which you can build again: Blended Materials. Van Soest conducted many experiments to find the right mixture, shape and heating process. 'Trial bakes' show an enormous variety in color and texture.

THE ENERGY COLLECTION : Marjan van Aubel. Everyday objects absorb energy from daylight. This solar glassware gathers energy from the light around it. Whether you are drinking from your glass or have left it on the side, it is constantly working to gather energy.

Polychrome Hybrid is a reversible jacket with 3 layers and two temperature zones. Cooling effect: Silver reflects solar radiation and protects the body from warming. This causes a pleasant cooling effect. Warming effect: Black absorbs solar radiation and generates heat that will be transported to the body. This keep warm and prevents the risk of cooling.

UVU Cold Race Jacket built from the exotic Shoeller c_change climate and temperature membrane, which functions similarly to that of a pine cone: opening in reaction to higher external or body temperatures, and closing in response to colder ones.
