Interzum presents materials that are transforming the world

Table of Contents

Interzum will show case innovative materials that are lighter, thinner, more compact, more flexible as well as durable for furniture production and interior construction.

Anticipation is building around the upcoming Interzum which will take place from May 21-24, 2019 in Cologne, Germany.

A major focus of the event will be placed on “Disruptive Materials – Changing the Future” a slogan chosen by the agency HAUTE INNOVATION who will showcase some of the latest material innovations and disruptive technologies at interzum 2019. The agency will curate this special exhibition. The term “disruptive technologies” describes innovations that replace old systems entirely. “In contrast to material innovations, disruptive materials have far-reaching effects,” explains Dr Sascha Peters, HAUTE’s Founder

The exhibition is divided into four areas: Biological Transformation, Resource Efficiency & Sustainability, Digital Materials & Smart Systems, and Production-Related Material Innovations. With more than 100 exhibits across roughly 400 square meters of exhibition space in Hall 04.2, the Disruptive Materials area is set to be one of the major attractions at interzum.

Digital Materials & Smart Systems illustrates heat able textile surfaces, magnetic woods and sofas that double as carbon loudspeakers.  Bio based materials and natural growth processes will be featured in conjunction with companies that produce leather from various plant fibers or plants to build living structures.

Lightweight construction and resource efficient solutions will be presented by Andrea Mocellin from Italy with foldable vehicles and the German company Lightweight Solutions, showing off its extremely material-efficient lightweight construction material. The exhibit will be rounded off by 3D-printed houses or e-bikes made from plywood production-related material innovations.

interzum is known for regularly injecting new inspiration and design ideas in tomorrow’s living spaces. The Disruptive Materials Piazza provides a look into the future.
