Materia exhibition: Lovely Light, Liège

Especially for the 2017/2018 ARCHITECT@WORK editions in Kortrijk, Liège, Luxembourg, and Rotterdam, Materia has created the exhibition “Lovely Light”. This exhibition shows the importance of the effect of light on our environment and the role of materials in that aspect. The visitor will be treated to 125 special material samples, inspiring projects and several special objects that will definitely make you see the light.

Light: we need it to live, for oxygen, energy, and our health. With light, we can party all night, we can see colours, and it makes us happy. How can material use light? At the Materia exhibition “Lovely Light”, you will discover special materials that all have a relationship with light, divided in the categories of translucence, reflection, UV reacting, light absorption, and light production. For instance, materials that bring daylight into a room, which stimulates the body to make serotonin that causes our feeling of happiness and health. Or how about translucent wood or concrete, super black coatings that absorb 98% of the light, iridescent coatings, energy generating foils, and materials that are interactively translucent? The most beautiful Glow-in-the-darks, textile with LED, and automatic sun shielding glass? Whether it is functional or aesthetic, at this exhibition, you will see the most beautiful and newest examples of materials and projects put in the limelight.

Many of these materials will be on display at Material’s “Lovely Light” exhibition at ARCHITECT@WORK Liège, Belgium.

Collaboration
ARCHITECT@WORK and Materia are both organisations that focus on the architect and designer.

We strengthen each other with this collaboration.”
