Surface Matter celebrate the materials we love with installations, events and a transformed material library for London Design Festival 2019. Focused on colour, pattern, collaboration and interaction with an emphasis on the future of sustainability, Surface Matter present the materials that surround and inspire us, with installations, workshops + talks.

In our materials studio, we'll have new material samples and displays alongside a new mirrored honeycomb door, new window designs and a Durat installation inspired by Mondrian. For updates and event details, visit this page or follow us on Twitter and Instagram #ProudMaterialists.
