A new organic material that uses the energy of the body’s movement, a luxury yacht that cleans the ocean, a new construction technique inspired by silkworms … here are three of the top 50 innovations that have been presented to Global Grand Show at Dubai’s Design District.
Dubai presents itself as one of the most vibrant and multicultural city of the Middle East, single platform for designers and creatives.
Among the most interesting ideas in the category dedicated to construction and building, a glove that can be used to hand carve hard materials such as stone and wood was presented by RCA Morten Grønning Nielsen.
Great interest also for the temporary Pavilion, a dome created with silk fibers woven from a robot mechanical arm, created by MIT.
We are monitoring the academic researches, exploring new materials and future technologies. The Global Grand Show has been able to show an overview of the international design thinking today!
