Nature: Collaborations in Design

Nature: Collaborations in Design - Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial

Nature: Collaborations in Design

Designers always have used natural materials, thinking of wood, stones, clay. With mass production, however, mass exploitation and destruction became an indispensable part of the design world. ‘Nature: Collaborations in Design’, the catalogue of the sixth Cooper Hewitt Design Triennal, mirrors the profound awareness of designers, that it is time to change the paradigm. In seven chapters – Understand, Simulate, Salvage, Facilitate, Augment, Remediate, and Nurture – designers collaborate with specialists stirred by the desire for a more holistic approach and regenerative future. Together with biologists, engineers, agriculturists, and environmentalists the contributors rethink design processes and anticipate future challenges. They let algae cultivate pre-shaped materials, rain create pattern structures, or salt crystals grow whole stools. And by that undergo the ultimate collaboration – the one with nature itself.
