During DesignMarch 2020, when touching is restricted, material experiments will be displayed using the help of the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), where visitors’ senses are stimulated to experience the materials.

Valdís Steinarsdóttir has been working on finding solutions to replace toxic materials with natural materials.
For example, she has worked on a series of projects where she has researched the meat industry and the various biological waste materials it produces.

Usually, guests would be allowed to touch the material experiments to experience them in a tactile way. However, now when obviously touching should be kept to a minimum Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) will be used to give guests sense for the materials using different means.
