Modern Synthesis is a biotech company, which brings new materials to life. Founded by ex-Adidas designer Jen Keane and synthetic biologist Dr. Ben Reeve, its patent-pending biotechnology process employs microbes to grow nanocellulose-based materials that are circular by nature, and customisable by design.

As well as producing materials which are 100% petrochemical and animal free, it produces technology that gives creatives complete control over the look, feel, and performance of the products they create.
