About this event

1. Living Plastics: How to bring materials to life? with Ghislaine Vantomme

About the presentation

Imagine you take your phone, you drop it on the floor, the screen is broken, you need to replace it. How great would it be if the screen could repair itself? I am a chemist and I look for strategies to bring materials to life. To achieve this, we need to control the structure of the materials at the molecular level. The challenge there is to understand how molecules come together and interact into complex structures. The interactions between the molecules are reversible bonds: bonds that can form, break and reform, and it is the motion we try to translate to the material. So that we can make plastics able to repair themselves or move like is they were alive.

About Ghislaine Vantomme

Ghislaine is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry at TU Eindhoven. She studied chemistry at l’Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris, France). In 2014, she defended a PhD with Prof. Jean-Marie Lehn (Nobel laureate) at Université de Strasbourg . Then she joined TU Eindhoven as a postdoctoral fellow to work with Prof. Bert Meijer and Prof. Dirk Broer. In 2019, she was appointed Assistant Professor at TU Eindhoven.

2. How materials and 3D printing can be applied to enhance social traditions With Michelle Baggerman

About the presentation

Playing with tech and tradition: adventures of a Dutch design researcher in the Japanese silk industry and the value of craft practices for a sustainable future.

While working for the KYOTO Design Lab of Kyoto Institute of Technology, Michelle was invited to do a design research project in which traditional industry and innovative design came together. The focus was to identify new uses for traditionally produced silk by transforming the material through the use of plastics and designing a range of conceptual products.

During this presentation you will hear the valuable outcome of this project and how technology can support the development of a more social-oriented future.

About Michelle Baggerman

Michelle is a curious designer. She takes an intuitive and inquisitive approach and sees every project as a chance for exploration and so combines her design practice with design research. The values of past practices and old techniques inspire her work as well as her taste for science and technology and a great concern for sustainable development. Her projects arise from unlikely intersections of old and new and provide approaches to a better future.
