Material Stories: Driving Design with Material Inspiration

Material Stories (tm) was initiated by Aart van Bezooyen in 2005 with the goal to bridge the gap between companies, creative professionals and the materials industry in an independent, conceptual and highly inspirational way.

With a background in industrial design and passion for materials, he supports clients such as Royal Philips Electronics, Hyundai/KIA, PARK, MUTTER and P&G in creating strategic, technological and innovative perspectives for materials in design and branding.

Besides conducting workshops, projects and trend research he lectures at universities in Hamburg and Bremen, usually in cooperation with suppliers, manufacturers and research institutions such as The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. For the Core77 Design Network, probably the biggest industrial design community based in the U.S., he reports as a materials expert about the European design scene and the latest material developments.
