Materials curation by MaterialDriven
MaterialDriven is a design consultancy and materials library in London. With an exciting range of materials in our collection we pay special attention to innovative materials, their applications, impact, and the creators behind them. MaterialDriven consults for architects, designers and brands who are looking for materials that address some of the key issues of our time- sustainability, performance, energy efficiency, waste, health and wellbeing and much more. Working with both established manufacturers and individual material makers, we help bring technically advanced and specialized materials to the design industry, and support emerging materials evolve from prototype to product.
MaterialDriven has a strong educational programme of curated exhibitions, talks and workshops supported by our publicly accessible materials library–based at the Building Centre in Central London that serves as a platform for research, education, specification and inspiration.
Some of our past work includes exhibitions at The BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Makerversity and London Design Festival, workshops at The Design Museum London, the Royal College of Art, and the University of Creative Arts, as well as talks at the Disruptive Innovation Festival, Somerset House, Ravensbourne University and Woolmark.Back to home page
