Break Out (round 1): 360: designing with vegetable leather – BlueCity Lab & Design Platform Rotterdam

October 24, 16:00 - 17:00

To avoid the negative impact of leather production, various entrepreneurs experiment with alternatives. What does this mean for production methods? How can we engage consumers with this biobased material? How to make it cost effective, what are the possibilities for scaling up? Attendees get a valuable insight in biobased frontrunners in Rotterdam and are invited to use their brains by contributing to the challenges ahead. How can we make this material waterproof? What are the implications when we use wax (biobased or not)? And what other solutions lie ahead?

The method for conversing about this topic is the fishbowl tecnique. Biobased leather will be questioned by public and experts from all angles with one goal: to leave the room filled with deeper understanding.

The BlueCity Lab has a wetlab & a drylab; next year the taste lab will be ready. In these labs, materials and services can grow from cell to end products. Lets grow the future together!
