The special exhibit clearly showed what developments are already taking shape today and what visions can be realized tomorrow. Examples illustrated the extent to which plastics characterize the design of modern living spaces — from a functional, esthetic, and sustainable perspective. Economic as well as ecological aspects were the subject of discussion, but problem areas such as marine litter were not excluded.
