MaterialDriven is a design education platform and consultancy.

Consultancy: Working with emerging designers, artists, and material makers, alongside their clients–architects, project owners, and material manufacturers–MaterialDriven incubates and facilitates the creation of innovative design. We provide our knowledge and design expertise, addressing the needs of client campaigns and broader company goals.

Education: Through workshops with clients; through in-depth content on our website, interactive webinars for young designers, and knowledge-partnerships with research and education institutions, MaterialDriven promotes innovation in material design and a collective of talented makers.

Why Material-Driven?

Underlying the role we play as educators, consultants, and project collaborators, is the belief that design driven by its selection and cultivation of materials represents the future of the design world. Rather than end-products, all of our interactions and content are oriented towards three things–Materials, Process and Makers.
