Lantal Fabrics at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

How are means of transportation changing, and what impacts will these changes have on our lives? What revolutionary new technologies are on the horizon? Will they make the world more sustainable?

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum in New York, which holds one of the world’s largest collections of design, addresses these questions in its current exhibition.

Lantal Fabrics

“The Road Ahead: Reimagining Mobility” takes a look into the future, focusing on the topics of innovation, mobility, security and sustainability. The exhibition showcases innovative designs and research to inspire visitors and encourage them to consider possible future scenarios – perhaps during a short rest on one of the three benches for which Lantal has provided its velour fabric.

The exhibition runs through March 31. As a manufacturer of textiles used in transportation, Lantal is pleased to be a small part of this exhibition!
