Droog’s 5th Milan exhibition

The first Dry Tech edition (in 1996) lead to new research and results: Hella Jongerius made fibre stools by coiling high tech fibres. Marcel Wanders made a table of epoxy resin reinforced with Swiss lace and Jan Konings & Jurgen Bey turned old chairs and tables into strange cocoons with an elastic synthetic spray that is normally used to wrap airplanes and army vehicles when they’re not in use.

New and intelligent technical fabrics had been developed with a team of fifteen mostly Dutch designers. On the express wish of Professor Engineer Adriaan Beukers (Senior Lecturer Design and Production of Composite Structures), two architects had been invited to apply intelligent fabrics in architecture as well.
