Chile returns to London Design Biennale in June with Borrowed Matter / Materia Prestada, a multi-sensory installation that invites to reflect on Chile’s timber industry, highlighting novel ways of working with biomaterials.
Featuring handmade textile pieces, the installation demonstrates the versatility of cellulose – a naturally sourced, biodegradable and renewable biopolymer sourced from wood – as well as showcasing traditional weaving practices.
Designed by Sofia Guridi and curated by Juan Pablo Vergara.
