Monday 20th September 2021
Sustainability, Creativity, Technology and Human Emotions in Seamless Dialog.
Presented by Gencork and Matter of Stuff
The 100% natural and sustainable expanded cork agglomerate is transformed through computational algorithms based on generative design, with strong inspiration in biology, mathematic, and geometry. The development of our cork panels, explores industrial digital manufacturing processes, opening up a new spectrum of possibilities, generating new formal aesthetics.
Presented by The Solid Wood Flooring Company
Have you ever wondered how can cutting down trees for wood flooring be sustainable? In an open discussion we'll look into the various solutions we as a manufacturer present for sustainability, circular construction and design needs for your project.
Tuesday 21st September 2021
Presented by Mogu and Matter of Stuff
By employing one of its finest technologies - mycelium - Mogu delivers responsible products for interior design.
We produce materials by growing selected strains of mycelium on pre-engineered substrates made of agro-industrial residues.
Our materials and products feature remarkable technical properties and radically innovative aesthetics. We offer new experiences, inspiring a more conscious relationship with the value, processes and life cycle of materials surrounding us in everyday life. A vision of home, offices, retails and spaces that embraces the radical character of Nature, to build a more honest and virtuous relationship with the ecosystem we are part of.
Presented by NIBE
Join NIBE as we discuss how we harness the power of nature to not only create the perfect indoor climate for your home but also a more sustainable future for the environment”
Wednesday 22nd September 2021
Presented by Mobilane
How we can influence biophilic design using innovated products, whilst saving on office space.
Presented by Nook and Sound Zero
This talk will expose how the invisible force of Sound can make or break a space; amplifying sustainable ways to tune an environment, delivering more inclusive outcomes.
Thursday 23rd September 2021
Newton Waterproofing Systems will deliver their top-rated RIBA CPD, focusing on the different forms of structural waterproofing systems in the UK market, and how to achieve the environmental grades defined by the British Standard for waterproofing, BS 8102:2009. This includes an overview of how different waterproofing systems can be combined to protect structures, how to design solutions for the lifetime of a building, and also what options exist for improving the sustainability and reducing the environmental impact of your waterproofing designs.
Smile about Plastics – Materials Reimagined. Designed to Inspire
Presented by Smile Plastics
Smile Plastics is a materials design and manufacturing house creating hand crafted, supersized panels for retail, architecture, interiors and product design around the world.
At Smile Plastics, we have two main goals. Firstly, we want to create the most beautiful circular plastics in the world – 100% recycled and 100% recyclable materials. Secondly, we want to challenge ideas about “waste” and the system that creates it.
11AM Sunlit Days & Hybriq+ Technloogy: Using Renewables and Recycling
Presented by Cosentino
The New Silestone with Hybriq+ Technloogy
An innovative generation of surfaces made entirely from renewable electricity, recycled water and a hybrid formulation. Silestone with HybriQ+® is a new high performance blend of premium minerals, quartz and recycled glass.
Commitment to innovation and quality has lead Silestone® to exceptional performance and amazing depth of colour, with the same quality and warranty that has proven us as market leaders.
HybriQ+® uses a minimum of 20% recycled materials in its composition, such as glass, and its manufacturing process is powered entirely by renewable electricity and recycled water.
In addition we introduce you to the Sunlit Days Collection of Silestone.
We present the first Carbon Neutral collection by Silestone®. A commitment to sustainability in which we reduce and offset the emissions of the manufacturing process with reforestation projects.
In addition, all colours in the Sunlit Days collection feature HybriQ+® technology: A sustainable manufacturing process which uses a minimum of 20% recycled glass in its composition.
This collection is also the start of a collaboration between Cosentino and Equilibrio Marino to save the Mediterranean.
Sunlit Days is inspired by the evocative Mediterranean shades of a unique lifestyle.
11AM Sustainability & Innovation in Contract Fabrics
Presented by Camira
The importance of environmental sustainability to interior textiles and how it relates to your specification of fabrics for commercial interiors.
Friday 24th September 2021
Warm Collection: the new project of surfaces for the interior design by Kerakoll.
Coordinated materials and colours for a fresh, young and contemporary home.
Presented by Magna/Low Impact
Example facade& interior surfaces applications of C2C crystallized glass slab - made from off site glazed facade or float and bottle wastestream (without resin). Totally Circular.
Andrew Savile, Architect and director of Low Impact Ltd. Discusses the manufacture, processing and application of this ground breaking material Magna Glaskeramik which received the Solar Impulse Foundation Label in 2020.
There is a recent interest in BAMB materials but few offer durability, incombustibility and performance for facade as well as interior surfacing.
Presented by Mater
Mater means ‘mother’ in Latin. The name is the daily reminder of our small contribution to preventing the challenges ‘mother earth’ faces. Design influences how we as humans live our lives; it shapes values, culture and society. Unfortunately, we are increasingly aware that the choices made during design processes often have environmental consequences. However, as a manufacturer, we have the opportunity to rethink dubious practices and create ethical and sustainable design that minimises adverse social and environmental impacts.
Presented by Cradle to Cradle® Principles. 540 WORLD
Circular Economy Building is Deficient: Healthy Futurescapes Require Robust Regenerative Design Based on Cradle to Cradle® Principles. 540 WORLD presents two world-first case studies, an infrastructure Thames Estuary world-first with the Environment Agency and a London retrofit, showcasing Cradle to Cradle Certified® materials and solutions for regenerative design in interiors.
While C02 and more recently circularity have both been on the world stage as real concerns in the built environment, there are five key performance categories that need equal and urgent attention. 540 WORLD discuss how to imbed materials with verified safe ingredients, circularity/re-use and de-construction solutions, healthy air and energy, clean water and soil and social fairness. This framework should be built into the design supply chain at pace to support the significant sustainability changes required for this decade and for the future.
