Bio-Logics: Designing with Nature
The Design Museum, London
March 06 – May 24, 2020

The award-winning design agency Faber Futures, founded by designer Natsai Audrey Chieza, presents a new display exploring how design can learn from nature to develop new materials and systems. Founded by designer Natsai Audrey Chieza, Faber Futures is a design agency working with nature, design and technology to build materials and processes from living matter.

Pioneers in the field of biodesign, their work questions how designers can collaborate with living systems to help tackle global problems such as pollution and waste. As we enter 2020, resources are depleting, yet consumption is expanding to meet the demands of a growing population. Faber Futures is investigating whether biological systems could offer more efficient, and less harmful, alternatives to industrial production.

This thinking is captured in Project Coelicolor, a project designed to minimise the use of water in textile dying by growing bacteria directly onto the textile instead of using synthetic dyes. Making bacteria the co-designer results in a chemical-free process that uses 500-times less water than usual.

For this display, Faber Futures presents design research, scientific experiments and prototypes that question whether we can achieve new processes for production that extract nature’s logic, rather than its resources. Could this radical new approach create a fairer and more sustainable future?

Until 12 July 2020, the MAK is showing a temporary intervention by Helmut Lang in the HELMUT LANG ARCHIVE, questioning the archive as a simultaneous collection, storage, and exhibition place, as a store of memories, and the potential of its use. Since retiring from the fashion industry in 2005, the 1956-born Austrian has concentrated on his artistic work, and 20 international museums have received his donations.
