Hoekmine will contribute coloured materials based around structural colour in bacteria to the Material Studio with 100% Design.
A consortium of scientists (Wageningen University Dept. Microbiology lead by Professor Hauke Smidt), fabricators (Protospace), designers (lead by Prof Elvin Karana, Dept Industrial Design, Delft University), educators (Hogeschool Utrecht) and industry (Hoekmine BV) have obtained funding for a project that allows artists and scientists to create new processes and materials based around structurally coloured bacteria that form the basis of the Hoekmine technology.
