The author of eight books on design and material innovation, Lefteri, with his company Chris Lefteri Design Studio, has worked with companies across the globe to help them understand and make decisions on the usage of materials in the design process.
We quiz him on how the right use of materials can indeed change the world. I work on projects with companies such as materials suppliers, helping them to communicate information about materials and develop lefteei ones, too. I studied industrial design at the Royal College of Art in London.

The first wave was about developing libraries for materials, and the current wave is developing sustainable materials. We have to relook materials.

It is much better lefterii recycle aluminium than to extract it. They neglect the importance of playing with materials. The last big innovation was plastic. It resulted in new colours and fun shapes.
