The Materials Room is now usually open from 11am to 3pm Monday to Friday during term-time for University staff and students. For safety, we are restricting numbers to not more than 10 in the room, and asking for masks to be worn where possible.
Please contact Marion (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make an appointment outside these hours, or for more information about the using the Special Collections.
This is a collection of several thousands of product samples from manufacturers, focusing on new and exciting materials for buildings and interiors. Samples range from floor tiles, glass, wood, plastics to fabrics and paint swatches. Brilliant for interior architecture but also offering ideas for textures, surfaces and materials for all designers. Most samples in the collection can be borrowed for a period of two weeks or more from the Materials Room.
Due to the on-going Covid 19 situation, the Materials Room and MoDA are currently closed for individual and group visits. We are working towards opening later in the autumn, but will keep you informed here about any changes to access.
For further information, please contact Marion(email@example.com) or Sherene (firstname.lastname@example.org).
