Abstract

Nowadays, materials development is led by circular economy criteria, market needs, and legislative issues. Product design has been in some way flanked by the material’s design. This allowed product designers to widen the mind for the application or the development of sustainable materials to be introduce in their creative environments. This work shows different research paths for the development of sustainable materials found in emerging industrial, handicraft and academic fields. Three different case studies, based on material-design approaches adopted within Design Master Degree thesis activities carried out in the laboratories of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering Department “Giulio Natta” of Politecnico di Milano are reported and clustered, too.
