Bionanoceluloza — Design Lab

Date

6 - 15 July, 10:00 - 20:00

place:

PSTP Gdynia
al. Zwycięstwa 96/98

Design Lab is going to constitute an exposition where it will be possible to learn about the bionanocellulose, as well as what are its possible uses.

The exposition will constitute a premiere presentation of the works created in the course of cooperation between the Experimental Design Studio from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk and an innovative biotechnological company from Pomerania - BOWIL Biotech, which manufactures bionanocellulose.

Design Lab is going to constitute an exposition where it will be possible to learn about the material, as well as what are its possible uses both in the near and far future.  Starting with futuristic visions up to those plausible and available any day now.

All designs were consulted scientifically.

What is bionanocellulose? It is a non-toxic, natural biomaterial with perfect properties such as: biocompatibility, porosity, ultra-cleanness, as well as plasticity in terms of modifications.

Due to its unique properties bionanocellulose is used in medicine, biotechnology, pharmaceutical science, dentistry, cosmetic products, food industry, and many other fields.

BOWIL Biotech possesses own laboratories, handles focused researches, and willingly participates in science-research projects concerning the use of bacterial cellulose in terms of medicine, bioimplants, cardiac surgery, and vascular surgery.

Students of the Experimental Design Studio directed by prof. Sławomir Fijałkowski and dr Marta Flisykowska will present prototypes and a short introduction concerning the idea behind the project.

The prototypes are made from 100% natural biopolymer, constructed from ultra-light nanocellulose fibers with their diameters not larger than 100 nm. 

Speaker:

  • curator of "Architecture and Design 2017/2018 Diplomas" and "Bionanoceluloza — Design Lab" exhibitions
