Material testing machine [exhibit]

BASF Polyurethanes GmbH

Commissioned by

BASF Polyurethanes GmbH

Time frame

April - September 2012


The Polyurethane Showroom presents more than products made from the versatile material: the exhibition has been designed to focus on research and development as well. An installation showing mechanical stress tests illustrates the complexity of material development processes. Shoe soles and material samples are subjected to a number of long-term tests. Robot grippers drop seemingly identical balls, thereby demonstrating different product properties.


Idea, conception, material tests and liaison with scientists. Planning and design of exhibits. Quality assurance during realization.
