Booming Bamboo event at Pakhuis de Zwijger

Last year, Materia published the book Booming Bamboo, about one of the most versatile materials in the world. To celebrate this, as well as bring the advantages of bamboo as a material in the limelight, we host an event about bamboo together with Pakhuis de Zwijger! Along with Pablo van der Lugt, auteur of the book, designers, and sustainability experts, we talk about bamboo as the material of the future. What is the impact of bamboo?

You can weave it, laminate it, spin it into fabric, even 3D print it. Bamboo is one of the most versatile materials in the world, yet it is still relatively unknown in world of design. Bamboo can be used in nearly all (creative) industries: in construction, (interior) architecture, mobility, products, sports, fashion, packaging, and many more. With climate change and resource scarcity looming over our heads, bamboo is a super versatile material that can help us create a more sustainable and circular society using biobased materials.
