Composite materials can be found everywhere, from land-based cars to boats in the water to aircraft in the air. The Design Museum Gent in Belgium organized an exhibition focusing on composite materials from October 26, 2018 to April 21, 2019, and demonstrated the extensive application of composite materials. The exhibition, called "Fibre-Fixed: Composites in Design", features 80 products made of composite materials designed to give people a better understanding of the clever design. The impact of composite materials on everyday life.


Co-curators Ignaas Verpoest and Lut Pil said the exhibition provided a gateway to the field of materials and engineering, especially in the composites sector. Verpoest said that this is not just an introduction to composites. “We want to show how new materials like composites can inspire designers to create new concepts – to propose breakthrough solutions to address climate change and sustainability. Social challenges such as sex, mobility, increasing urbanization and population ageing."


Verpoest and Pil are ideal candidates for the joint curator of Fibre-Fixed. Verpoest is Professor Emeritus of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leuven, Belgium. He is a visiting professor of Toray Composites at KU Leaven and is involved in research projects on carbon fiber composites and natural fiber reinforced composites. He is also the co-founder and board member of Econcore, a global manufacturer of honeycomb sandwich materials. Pil is a professor at the LUCA School of Arts in Ghent, Belgium. The two have been holding composite materials and design exhibitions since 2002.


The latest exhibition was held in collaboration with a Dutch design company, Envisions, to showcase epoxies, polyesters, polypropylene and others from rayon (carbon and fiberglass) and natural fibres (flax, hemp, jute and silk). Resin products. Verpoest said: “The exhibition showcases a large number of design cases in which designers use composite materials in surprisingly but innovative ways.” Items on display include carbon fiber reinforced plastic violin, flax fiber cello, hummingbird folding Bicycles, solar airplane models, automotive panels, calf prostheses and chairs.


These works come either from designers or from producers. Verpoest and Pil took a lot of effort to reduce the number of items in the exhibition from twice their initial list to the final number. Verpoest said: "We could have chosen more, but we ended up choosing only some of the exhibits that are unique because they make them particularly attractive."


One of Pil's favorite pieces in the exhibition was “Desert Stool (Salt-Vegetarian Design)”, from the designer Erez Nevi Pana, who designed the “vegetarian furniture” with salt and soil. One way to grow an organic material into a composite is to immerse the branches in brine until the salt crystallizes on the branches and between the branches. The wood used to make the stool was entangled and soaked in the Dead Sea for several months. Pil said: "I really appreciate Nevi Pana's investment in design. He conveyed this design concept to a wide range of visitors through a poetic work. We not only need new technological achievements and development, but also subversive raw materials. practice."


Australian designer Brodie Neill designed and made the table Gyro from the plastic bags that were salvaged on the beach. It was named after gyre, meaning the world's sea water. The plastic bags are made of plastic fragments, and the speckled pattern gives the terrazzo feel, from blue to white, like the deep starry sky and the sea. According to designer Neill, “The plastic waste of the ocean is not unique to Australia. This has become a global problem in the past 50 years. The environmental and economic impact is very obvious. Everyone needs to Share responsibility."


In addition to the case of terminal applications, the exhibition also showcased raw material works and presented videos of 10 composite manufacturing methods. Although the final figures have not yet been announced, the exhibition has indeed attracted a large audience. According to Professor Verpoest, more than 4,000 visitors have been attracted in the two weeks before and after Christmas. This is a very high number for the Ghent Design Museum, which also includes many companies, schools and culture. Organizations and other organizations.


Verpoest hopes that “people are passionate about the interaction between designers and new composites and find that this interaction can help solve many social challenges.” Consider the waste of materials: A chair designed by Christien Meindertsma is grown locally. Linen and a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester from renewable sources. This 100% bio-based chair is lightweight and biodegradable, thus avoiding material waste during production and at the end of its useful life.


Verpoest and Pil hope to see the “Focus on Fibers” exhibition around the world. They are optimistic about the future of composite materials. Verpoest said: "Because of its inherent technical characteristics, composite materials have broad prospects in all critical applications such as lightweight, environmentally friendly and sustainable. But more importantly, this exhibition undoubtedly proves that designers The creativity and imagination will bring more amazing application cases and even bring new composite concepts!"


In the face of excessive population growth, global warming, resource depletion, environmental pollution and other issues, the concept of green design and sustainable design has become more and more popular. The rational use of resources and the recycling of resources have gradually become an important direction of material development. . This means that higher requirements are placed on the materials in the design. The composites in the Fibre-Fixed exhibition are environmentally friendly while ensuring the aesthetics and durability of the design, demonstrating the amazing power that allows us to see the infinite potential of its innovative development. It is believed that with the change of the times and the advancement of science and technology, composite materials will exert its infinite possibilities, spread more applications in the world, and contribute more to the protection of the global environment!
