Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design
Material Research Hub
Interdisciplinary research group focusing on tangible technology, dynamic surfaces, biomaterials, electronic textiles and soft robotics. They develop prototypes, research fabrication methodologies and create new materials.
By merging hardware competence and with dedicated software development, the hub emphasizes on exploring new materials allowing us to reshape the future and redefine the relationship between humanity and the materiality we are surrounded by.
By developing through an experimental scope towards augmented textiles, biomaterials and soft circuitry, the results are practical, impactful material innovations, positively affecting the current and future state of the human condition.
SALT, a Michelin star restaurant based in Budapest, has asked us to create a mycelium composite platter to be used as a dessert serving plate. The realisation of a unique design, developed in consultation with the client, proved to be a challenging yet rewarding project where we could contribute to the future of a more circular gastronomy.
The Conscious Textile Group is currently conducting a one-year long design-led research project on textile recycling. The aim of the project is to create high quality textile materials from reclaimed fibres that can be re-integrated into the textile industry, creating a closed-loop recycling system.
