Wondrous ‘stuff’

The Institute of Making at UCL is launching a fantastic new resource called the Materials Library, where a collection of some of the most incredible materials have been gathered ‘from sheds, labs, grottoes and repositories around the world.”


From Aerogel, the lightest solid on earth, to an aluminium nitride wafer that cuts ice like butter, or bioglass scaffold, that provokes cells to transform into bone on contact, the collection is sure to inspire designers, architects, engineers and product designers. Look at their website here
