From traditional ceramics to cutting-edge 3D printing technology, designjunction2017 is set to be the platform for innovative product design this September. In this week's newsletter, we take a look at six of our brands from the 2017 line-up who experiment with materials through stunning collaborations, eco-friendly processes, ground breaking developments and much more.

This month, we're talking about materials that appeal, inspire and intrigue. Join the conversation by sharing textures which catch your eye, objects made from your favourite material, or processes and innovations which excite you. Let us know using #wheredesignmeets and #materials. Best post will win Iro - a soft merino wool throw by exhibitor Anna-Lisa Smith, for more information on how to enter click here.
