Master Industrial Design podcast: design journey #2

What bio-based, sustainable alternatives can be found for synthetic textiles?

The past semester the enthusiastic first year students of the Master Industrial Design at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague sought to answer this question under the guidance of designer and teacher Lenneke Langenhuisen of design duo Buro Belén.

Buro Belén call themselves 'materializers'. But what do 'materializers' do? We interviewed Lenneke about Beléns design practice and the challenges of working with natural materials and making industry more sustainable.
