Matter is a platform, research studio and consultancy exploring the relationship between materials, ideas and processes. Launching at One Good Deed Today, during the London Design Festival, Matter presents a series of talks, workshops and events.
Living in a Material World is an exhibition taking you on a journey of experiencing materiality through all five senses including talks, events and workshops.
26th September is the day of Taste and we've got tasting, a talk and a demonstration continuing the Festival.
Miriam Ribul explains how materials can be produced using domestic tools and ingredients in an household kitchen.
In the pursuit to develop a variation of models to replace traditional manufacturing processes, each prototype implies systems for producing known materials and structures in an alternative way. The outcome of this project is a recipe book featuring a group of prototypes that prove the potentials of these models. The book is available on ISSUU and will be available to view in our reading room at the exhibition.
Miriam Ribul is a design researcher exploring new models for design interventions at the intersection of collaborative and trans-disciplinary practice for materials research. She developed research in material coding systems with a funding award from COST, the European Cooperation in Science and Technology. Recent publications are the outcome of her research engagements with TED’s ‘interconnected design thinking and processes’ project in the international MISTRA Future Fashion consortium between 2011-2015, with UAL Futures for a Digital Creative Toolkit (2015), and with scientists in COST (2014). Miriam holds an MA in Material Futures at Central Saint Martins. She engages in new initiatives as consultant for a range of industry clients, curatorial roles, and as academic lead in sustainable design projects.
