New Material Award

The presenter Andrea van Pol will hold a discussion with the 2016 New Material Fellow, Diana Scherer, and the nominee Simone Post. How have they fared after the award, and what is the current state of their research? The New Material Award partners will then provide more information about the forthcoming edition and answer questions concerning entry and criteria.

The New Material Award is being organised in 2018 for the seventh time. The award was set up in 2009 (under the name of the DOEN | Materiaalprijs) to challenge artists, designers and architects to apply new sustainable materials and innovative techniques. For more information see
