10 Innovative Materials To Look Out For In 2012

Interview on freshome.com

February 2012

The development of new materials that have increased performance and functionality has become a major driver of innovation in recent years. According to the Industrial Technologies arm of the Research and Innovation department of the European Commission, it is estimated that 70% of all new product innovation is based on materials with new or improved properties. These emergent materials and their associated technologies are changing the way that architects and designers work and the way that we as consumers are engaging with the buildings and products that surround us.

Freshome caught up with Dr. Sascha Peters, author of the book MATERIAL REVOLUTION to ask him exactly what materials will be revolutionizing the market in 2012. He kindly agreed to share with us 10 of the materials that feature in his book. These are materials that Peters believes will be making an impact in architecture and design.
