Martin Beeh describes materials.cologne-Die Konferenz für Design und Innovation as an interdisciplinary knowledge-platform that brings together designers, architects, interior architects and all those leaders that create the future of industry and business. This year’s topic is „Materials and Sustainability“. Major challenges are ahead, but an inexhaustible potential of materials, processes and human-based innovation is already available to be used, right now. The conference offers a kind of „Master Plan“ for design of a sustainable future in circular economy, based on materials innovation, holistic planning and bold realisations.
