“We are building a thriving open-source repository of sustainable resources for designers and architects.”

We feature environmentally responsible materials (soon to also add manufacturing techniques).

Material Future 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. This site is a way to get connected with others and for the design and architecture communities to share their knowledge about materials. This is an open source project, created to inspire the next generation of designers and architects and move us forward towards a sustainable world.
