Intro to Materials + Material Sessions with Surface Matter

Learn about innovative and inspirational materials in our studio. A great opportunity for brands, architects, designers, makers and material enthusiasts who want to understand more about materials they love or perhaps they’ve never heard of before. For London Design Festival, Surface Matter is hosting some open sessions that can be attended online or in person – individually, with a friend or as a team. You’ll find interesting recycled and recyclable materials with examples of how they can be used to create inspiring, useful spaces that encourage interaction.
