Material Vision 2009


Innovative materials for designers, architects and product developers
 

Natural or high-tech materials: the new generation of innovative materials is multi-functional and characterised by tailor-made features and forms. A selection of these new materials for technology, design and architecture was on show at the Material Vision trade fair in Frankfurt am Main from 16 to 18 June 2009.
