NATURE - Cooper Hewitt x Cube Design Museum

NATURE is an unique cooperation, hosted simultaneously at Cooper Hewitt in New York and at the Cube design museum in Kerkrade, Netherlands, "Nature" shows how designers are responding to human-induced climate change and the impending environmental crisis.

Are the limits of nature stretchable? How do we use our finite source of natural resources in the right way? What can we still learn from nature? How do we bring people and nature together again? Designers around the world are getting more and more inspired by nature, driven by the need to use our earth and natural resources in a sustainable way. Plastic made from algae, textiles colored by raindrops and bandages that mimic the natural healing benefits of snail mucus are some examples of the ingenious projects from the exhibition.

Cube and Cooper Hewitt have selected the most promising projects of the past three years for NATURE. The exhibition shows work by international top designers, such as Neri Oxman, Oron Catts and Mathieu Lehanneur, and acclaimed Dutch designers such as Klarenbeek & Dros, Atelier NL, Nienke Hoogvliet, Kirstie van Noort, Aliki van der Kruijs and Teresa van Dongen.
