Material of the Year: Biomaterials, Second Yield

For 2019 the Fair has chosen Biomaterials as this year's annual material of the year. These are materials often derived/made from by-products from the agricultural industry.  Once the waste has been identified then the hard work begins involving hundreds of hours of picking apart the agriculture chain they come from, figuring out the intercept moment to harvest these by-products and then figuring out how to sustainably utilize them on mass. 

To demonstrate the complexities surrounding biomaterials  4 brilliant examples have been identified that move the needle in the environment's favour. As with previous Material of the Year exhibitions,the Fair has been working with the inventors to translate their material into functional and aesthetically sustainable design products which will be unveiled at the Second Yield exhibition at the Fair in September.
