Introducing the Samples Collection

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( or Sherene (
