The Invention of Nature
In the post-pandemic era, people’s thirst for nature has become stronger and stronger. Everyone is constantly looking for the best balance with nature in their lives. As the world’s first product made from natural plant waste recycling as part of the raw materials, the suede material Ultrasuede® was born in 1970, has been widely used in all aspects of our life for 50 years, just like nature.
As early as the 19th century, the famous German natural scientist and explorer, Alexander von Humboldt, the founder of modern geography, proposed that a large part of our perception of the natural world should be based on the connection of sensory and emotional perception. Coinciding with his 252 years birthday, in order to pay tribute to his great contribution to natural research, Ultrasuede® joins hands with CUUNION to present “The Invention of Nature” art exhibition at Shanghai Yueyang Plaza on 24th – 28th September, 2021.
The exhibition is divided into three chapters, “New World”, “Perception of Nature” and “Imitation of Nature”. Specially invited artists and cutting-edge designers use Ultrasuede® cutting-edge technology non-woven microfiber suede artificial leather materials to transform daily life from the big one. Inspirations from nature are deconstructed and reconstructed in a unique way to create sizable and tactile works that lead visitors to experience the subtle texture of Ultrasuede® up close.
