Material Driven EXHIBITION AND WORKSHOP SERIES
SENSE AND SUSTAINABILITY EXHIBITION
LUXE PACK is thrilled to be partnering up with Material Driven this year, a design agency and materials library whose expertise lies in locating and sourcing innovative materials, as well as understanding their applications, and impact across industries. Their work covers three realms – consulting, curation, and education for a wide array of enterprises from fast-moving consumer goods companies to architectural studios. Specifically for LUXE PACK New York, Material Driven will be offering an immersive SENSE AND SUSTAINABILITY exhibition and workshop series. All attendees and exhibitors are invited to explore a curated materials capsule available throughout the entire 2-day event. The exclusive collection of original and inviting materials will address themes such as biodegradability, recycling, carbon footprint, accessibility, health, well-being, and more – pertinent to the world of packaging design and beyond. The sensory array of samples has been strategically selected to address and enable ideas of sustainability.
ALSO SUPPLEMENTING THE EXHIBITION IS AN INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP SERIES
Workshop 1: Morning Session
Materializing the Senses
How can cutting edge, tactile and unconventional materials handpicked for packaging help deliver a sensory, elevated experience? Which luxurious, high-performing, yet beautifully crafted materials can provide the sensations of awe, curiosity, connectedness, and comfort, among others? The hands-on workshop will dive into a world of advanced, diverse materials that are ripe for packaging design while building individual sensory palettes and analyzing mystery materials.
Workshop 2: Afternoon Session
Break it Down: Sustainability
From compostable and biodegradable materials to those with lower carbon, energy, and water footprints, to bio-based and recyclable solutions—materials offer the most tangible pathway to sustainability for products and their packaging. Decoding and demystification is essential though, to navigate today’s ‘sustainable material choices’. With a library of innovative physical samples to aid and inspire them, attendees will break down concepts, develop their own sustainability criteria and labeling system, and visualize their dream packaging solutions with materials at hand.
The full series will be led by: Purva Chawla, Founder, and Partner at MaterialDriven
The workshops will be open to all attendees on a first come first serve basis.
