RISD Zero Waste | Biomaterial Evolutions

RISD Zero Waste alumni brings you a future-focused dialogue with innovators in the rapidly evolving field of biomaterials. Meet Grace Knight of Ecovative, who is materializing new mycelium developments, Elliot Roth of Spira, delving deep into the world of high-pigment algae, and Arin Naidu of Spiber, manipulating silk protein. We’ll be picking these brilliant brains on the intersection of design and material R&D, as well as looking at how biomaterials have been productized and influenced by technological advancements and changing consumer consciousness. Our speakers are eager to share the exciting impacts of their specific technologies and muse on the future of bio-based materials. Bring questions and curiosity to our audience Q&A. All are welcome.

Moderated by Aaro Ainsley MDes 16 and Callie Clayton 17 TX, co-leaders of the RISD Zero Waste alumni affinity group and its committee on Circular + Sustainable Fashion.
