Materialise’s adventures at the Victoria and Albert Museum

For 10 exciting days in September, Materialise found itself at the epicenter of the world of art and design as it took part in the London Design Festival, 2011. During the festival, the world-renowned Murray Moss, called the Washington Post “America's most closely watched purveyor of industrial design,” presented a special exhibition in the Victoria and Albert Museum (the V&A) entitled Industrial Revolution 2.0: How the Material World Will Newly Materialise. This exhibition involved the placement of 3D printed objects in eight strategic locations in the museum, with each piece telling a story through the interaction with its surroundings. All of the pieces involved were produced here at the Materialise headquarters in Belgium.

This event was fantastic because it not only gave us prized invitations to the best London Design Festival parties, but we were also able to reward our customers with a VIP Tour of the exhibition led by none other than the curator himself, Murray Moss.

You can learn more about the exhibition and how it is was made by watching the videos below, or by reading coverage of the event through the links provided.
