1014 presents 'Plastic. Remaking Our World' with Jochen Eisenbrand

Thursday, May 12 from 6:30–8 PM, as part of NYCxDESIGN, New York's 1014 cultural space presents Jochen Eisenbrand, Chief Curator at the Vitra Design Museum, speaking on the current exhibition and forthcoming catalog, Plastic: Remaking Our World. After an introduction of the exhibition topics, Eisenbrand will discuss the rise and fall of a material that has been elemental to the design world and become a symbol of modernity as well as its shortcomings. Featuring Lola Ben-Alon, Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP, and designer Charlotte McCurdy. Please register here!

1014 presents 'Plastic. Remaking Our World' with Jochen Eisenbrand

Plastics have shaped our daily lives like no other material: from packaging to footwear, from household goods to furniture, from automobiles to architecture. A symbol of carefree consumerism and revolutionary innovation, plastics have spurred the imagination of designers and architects for decades. Today, the dramatic consequences of the plastic boom have become obvious and plastics have lost their utopian appeal. The exhibition »Plastic: Remaking Our World« at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein examines the history and future of this controversial material: from its meteoric rise in the twentieth century to its environmental impact and to cutting-edge solutions for a more sustainable use of plastic.

1014 presents 'Plastic. Remaking Our World' with Jochen Eisenbrand

Topics include rarities from the dawn of the plastic age and objects of the pop era as well as numerous contemporary designs and projects ranging from efforts to clean up rivers and oceans to smart concepts for waste reduction and recycling through to bioplastics made from algae and mycelium.
