The show, which was on view in Bangkok last year, presents numerous highly-innovative Thai materials such as: papers made with banana plant fibres, edible packaging derived from cassava starch, bio-active fabrics made with bacteria cultured with fruit juice, and eco-friendly inks that contain vegetable and soybean oil, applied in a series of art objects, prototypes and case studies.


The exhibition will remain on show at Material ConneXion‘s New York City headquarters until 31 August and for those of you who cannot make it to the Big Apple, Architonic has created an inspiring photo gallery showcasing some of the most interesting, innovative and unusual materials from the show.
