Material Show + Tell is a source of inspiration for designers and architects to consider the potential of materials. As the “ingredients” and building blocks of every space and physical product – materials play a huge part in the design process. They impact aesthetics, sustainability, performance, the tactile aspects of every physical creative project.
We’ve designed Material Show + Tell to be created at companies, schools and universities around the world.
With over 12 years in the industry, our leading professional is Matthew Grigsby. Matt has worked with several large Fortune 500 companies and has been featured in the Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, along with the BBC, Dwell and Metropolis magazine.
We strive to open up the opportunity for professionals in the industry to come check out the latest and most innovative materials. Spotlighting a handful of manufacturers from around the globe, we showcase materials such as pineapple leather, paper concrete, and light-transmitting concrete.
