Very interesting conferences
These conferences happened on Friday, but they were too interesting not to talk about!
Plastic: a second chance
One very interesting conference that took place was Plastic: a second chance. Can plastic be more desirable and sustainable? That’s what this conference was about. Plastic was put on the spotlight. Bringing together designers, engineers and creatives, essential Milanese gallery owner Rossana Orlandi puts the spotlight on plastic: recycled, reworked, recovered, it shifts from the status of annoying waste to that of the material of the future.
