Material ConneXion:  The Global Resource of New and Innovative Materials for Architects, Artists and Designers

From the largest global resource of new materials comes this innovative new book that connects materials to designers’ needs. In each of the seven main sections, this highly illustrated book identifies key trends, looks to the future, and helps design professionals select materials with the most potential for their specific projects. By defining materials based on base composition rather than current use, it gives a better understanding of their potential and understanding.

“IF YOU SEE A NEW MATERIAL, IT’S LIKE A KEY THAT OPENS A DOOR.
BEHIND THE DOOR THERE’S A KIND OF NEW WORLD, FILLED
WITH NEW PEOPLE, NEW FIGURES, NEW IDEAS, NEW VISIONS.”
WOLFGANG JOOP fashion designer, Hamburg, Germany

“MY FAVORITE MATERIALS ARE ONES THAT CAN BE ALMOST
IMMATERIAL IN APPEARANCE – GLASS OR PLASTICS. PLASTICS
PROVIDE THE MOST VARIED PERFORMANCES, FINISHES, and
DIVERSE PROPERTIES. THEY INSPIRE ME TO CREATE FLUID,
SOFT, ORGANIC, ALMOST HUMAN FORM.”
KARIM RASHID  industrial designer, New York
