The guest exhibition Closing the Loop by the Solaris Community puts a spotlight on the 11 million tons of plastic that end up in our oceans every year. With its innovative members #tide ocean material® and IWK Institut für Werkstofftechnik und Kunststoffverarbeitung ocean plastic waste that has been damaged by water, salt, and UV radiation, can be revived into valuable materials. With upcycling as a key circular economy driving force, the exhibition showcases art, furniture, lighting and fashion created by designers and brands such as Karim Rashid, Pierre Balmain, Swarovski and Julia Koerner. The exhibition Closing the Loop is made by Solaris Community in collaboration with Materialbiblioteket. The exhibition is shown in hall A.
