MATERIAL INNOVATION is an ambitious new series identifying and examining the new and innovative materials that are transforming art, design and technology practice.

‘Ideal as a reference guide for both those in design education and professionals’ – New Design
‘An inspiring survey as well as a comprehensive reference guide’– Coolhunting.com

This volume features carefully selected products that showcase the innovative use of a particular material, focusing on specific categories of products – grown materials, surface fortification, advanced composites, additive manufacturing media, recycled materials and the integration of electricity. Clearly structured and illustrated with carefully selected images throughout, this book will connect material to reader and will inspire both stents and professionals to pursue the optimal material for each specific application.

The coverage of the projects is extensive, from medical equipment to clothing, with materials ranging from hemp and kelp to titanium and biocomposite glass fibres. Six specially commissioned ‘visual narratives’ by experts in the field are incled. The extensive illustrated materials directory contains detailed information on almost 100 materials.

The series is being produced in association with Material ConneXion, a materials consultancy agency with unparalleled expertise in innovative and sustainable materials. Its materials library of advanced, innovative and sustainable materials and processes is the largest of its kind in the world.

With a preface by Michele Caniato, the President of Material ConneXion, and an introduction by Allan Chochinov, Chair and Co-founder of the School of Visual Arts MFA in Products of Design Program in New York, the texts are authoritative and yet also accessible.

Andrew H. Dent, Ph.D., Vice President of Library and Materials Research at Material ConneXion, leads a team of material experts to solve design challenges and help companies develop the products of tomorrow.
Leslie Sherr has written extensively about architecture, design and gardens. As a brand strategist, she has worked for several leading communication design firms, most recently C&G Partners.
