MaterialDriven is a design and innovation consultancy.

The company focusses on inventive materials, their processes of making, and the creators behind them. Working with both established manufacturers and individual makers, MaterialDriven helps bring technically advanced and specialized materials to the design industry, and supports emerging materials evolve from prototype to product.

While its educational arm serves as a resource for the design community–highlighting products and materials in an open-source format–its consultancy caters to brands and manufacturers, while tapping into its large database and network. MaterialDriven works particularly to aid a new
breed of innovators–material makers–whom it pairs with manufacturers, brands, and fellow practitioners, resulting in collaborations which are instrumental to scaling-up new materials and inventions, as well as integrating them into industry and community.

The company’s work takes the format of exhibitions, installations, talks and workshops, communication campaigns and built projects. Their projects and talks have been devised for the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, the Design Museum in London, the Royal College of Art,
London Design Festival, Design Junction, the Disruptive Innovation Festival, and Somerset House.

MaterialDriven is led by partners Purva Chawla and Adele Orcajada.
