Material Sense

Material Sense was founded by Simone de Waart in 2003. The organization supports companies and institutions in materials research focused on sensory experience, the development of new (bio)materials and sustainable innovation strategies for products and the built environment. It creates international traveling exhibitions that increase the visibility of materials, bringing together the worlds of art, science, design and business.

In 2014, Material Sense launched LAB, the independent foundation that focuses on circular design and sustainable materialization in field labs through interdisciplinary collaboration with stakeholders. LAB develops proof of concepts for biomaterials, biotechnology, and the valorization of waste streams.
