Relife / Reuse: The future of surface materials? - Jim Biddulph (Material Lab)
There are an increasing number of materials that can be described with some form of the prefix of RE; be it re-use, re-life, re-cycle, re-purpose or re-constitute. We’ll be sharing some notable examples of surface materials that transform existing materials from one state to another, more often than not saving them from landfill as a waste item. With insight from material makers & manufacturers as well as specifiers we’ll share the processes that are involved in generating a new lease of life for materials and in the process, discover the pros and cons of such regenerative.
