Materials not only influence our physical and neurological health but also our way of being, our understanding and our perception of things and places -socially, politically, economically- and qualitatively influence everyday life.
For designers, materials assist the translation of an idea into an experience. Materials are the medium by which interior designers manifest and communicate their ideas. And, as designers, our material choices influence other people’s experiences.
