Volvo 360c 
A New Way To Travel
   
Imagine you have an early morning meeting in a neighbouring city.

Which would you choose? In the not too distant future we see a world where fully autonomous electric vehicles are the answer to personal mobility needs. In an aim to bring our vision of the future to life, Volvo developed the 360c. Individual mobility needs are evolving.

Fibre-Fixed – Composites in Design
Design Museum Gent – Gent Belgium
October 26, 2018 – April 21, 2019

The exhibition Fibre-Fixed Composites in Design will run from 26 October 2018 until 21 April 2019 at Design Museum Gent. This exhibition shows how combining (bio)plastic with fibres yields materials we have never seen before. Synthetic materials like epoxy, polyester or polypropylene are reinforced with carbon, glass, flex, hemp or wood fibres: a marriage between composites that combines the strength and rigidity of fibres with the lightness of plastics. Carbon fibres are, for example, just as rigid as steel, but weigh five times less. And that inspires designers. At least 85% of the ecological footprint of a car is created by driving in it, for example.
