School of Architecture and Design lecture: exploring materiality – 7 December

Monday 7 December, 5pm, Parkside Lecture Theatre

With Chris Lefteri, on ‘What will the future feel like? The changing role of materials and design’


Chris Lefteri is one of the most instrumental materials experts working in his field. For over a decade his studio work and publications have been pivotal in the way designers and the materials industry consider materials. In 2001 he published the first of eight books on materials and the application in design, which have been translated into six languages. These books have led the change in the way designers view and use materials. Subsequently his studio, Chris Lefteri Design, has worked with Fortune 500 companies and major design studios across Europe, the US and Asia implementing a broad range of strategies for effective materials integration in the design process.
