Entry: Materials
Focus: Materia



Materia was founded in 1998 by a small group of idealistic architects. At that time the main focus was limited to gleaning new materials and relevant information. We mainly serviced Dutch architects and designers. In 2002 the first traveling exhibition in combination with a book was published. In 2005 we launched both Material Skills and Material Explorer and we are confident to have everything in place now to achieve our goals and add value to the markets by realizing our mission.
