Exhi­bi­tion by bay­ern design and the Neues Muse­um Nuremberg

New mate­ri­als have always had a major impact on the design dis­ci­pline. How­ev­er, the con­fronta­tion with resource scarci­ty, cli­mate and bio­di­ver­si­ty crises leads design­ers to an increased reflec­tion and a new urgency in the use of mate­ri­als, their ori­gin and pro­duc­tion. Eco­log­i­cal require­ments and their social and eco­nom­ic con­di­tions are in focus.

bay­ern design and the Neues Muse­um Nürn­berg will joint­ly present a design exhi­bi­tion on the top­ic of new mate­ri­als in the six façade rooms of the muse­um from April 21, 2023. The exhi­bi­tion illus­trates how design­ers today not only use new mate­ri­als in their design, but also explore more sus­tain­able and inno­v­a­tive mate­ri­als and pro­cess­ing meth­ods themselves.

To this end, the exhi­bi­tion brings togeth­er select­ed design stud­ies and objects in the three chap­ters Research, Appli­ca­tion and Spec­u­la­tion. The exhibits illus­trate how designers:inside are using new and respon­si­ble mate­ri­als not only as func­tion­al mate­ri­als, but are con­scious­ly using them as design elements.

The exhi­bi­tion will open on April 20 at 7:00 pm. Admis­sion is free, but reg­is­tra­tion is requested.
