The MetaMaterial Design lab focuses on novel 3D printed material structures, material combinations, and their applications. Metamaterials have properties which emerge from the design of these 3D printed structures rather than the print material itself.
We envision future 3D Printed products in which Metamaterials are at the core of their functioning. Metamaterials can be adaptative, interactive, or could even assist or support living materials in products.
At the MetaMaterial Design Lab, we generate knowledge that supports designers to develop and apply metamaterials in the unexplored regions of the property space.
