By topic "Disruptive Materials - Changing the Future" some of the latest material innovations and disruptive technologies were presented at interzum 2019.

New materials are the main drivers of product innovation. This applies to product developers as well as to designers and architects.

With more than 100 exhibits on around 400 square metres in Hall 4.2, the special area focused on the main fields of innovation.
