We are a growing collaborative of designers who are fascinated with the role that materials can play in shaping design. Our intent, at MaterialDriven is to create a resource, a bank, so to speak of conversation surrounding innovation in materials technology and design products. We love speaking with designers who are pushing the boundaries of design, using materials as their language. We want MaterialDriven to be platform FOR THEM. Reach out to us if you feel like we can find a place for your work on our website!
From our Founding Editor:
I am a young architect and landscape designer. I have an immense passion and curiosity for materials. Serving us both for construction and as finish, materials and their impact on users have long since captivated my interest. On this website, materials are often the lens through which I will describe and critique my experiences.
My own roots as a designer lie in India, in Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania, at a unique interdisciplinary design practice in Pittsburgh and now in Dallas, Texas where I am now based.At this moment, I am pursuing professional licensing as a Landscape Architect in Texas (halfway there, Woo hoo!).
Read on to hear our thoughts, drawn from conferences and lectures in the field of design, interactions with designers and fabricators and reviews of design products and services!
