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.
