The exhibition showed the work of Master Industrial Design (MID) students of the Fabrics and Fabrication programme, a collaboration between the Royal Academy of Art The Hague (KABK) - MID and TextileLab Amsterdam Waag.

The students developed designs that deal with the well-being of people and the planet and they explored disruptive approaches, searching for alternative models for production processes and business strategies. They analysed and research the existing manufacturing systems and developed alternative materials and scenarios. Their final results were showcased during a collaborative event at Waag.
