International Meeting on Design & Materials to be held in July

Jun '07
The Metropolitan Design Center (CMD), Ministry of Production, Government of the City of Buenos Aires, calls for participation in the CMD Conference 07/ International Meeting on Design and Materials, to be held on July 20th and 21st in La Rural.

In its third consecutive edition, the CMD Conference seeks to address the processes of creating new materials and at the same time generating the exploration process that companies and designers develop and that allow symbolic, economic and social value to be builded from raw material.

The conference will include sessions with a special focus on “Material Research”; “New material development”; “Raw material development processes”; “Quality perception in materials”; “Transference of materials to other sectors” “Industrial and handmade production technologies” “Material exploration by designers” “Material semantics”, and “Material bionics”.

The CMD Conference is a platform for knowledge promotion and transfer where theoretical and project contents are combined. This lectures are framed in an annual event in which more than twenty panelists participate for an audience of over three hundred people.

It was created by the Metropolitan Design Center with the objective of promoting both metropolitan and regional strategic thought, and it is organized annually by the Design Network (Friends of CMD Association) with the support of associated businesses.

The 07 CMD Conference will feature the presence of renowned international designers, who together with the local panelists, will present cases that show research on new material, the use of existing material for different applications, the use of ecological, recycled or recyclable material, and other possibilities that arise in the development of new products, spaces or concepts.
