Material Library

Understanding the materials that something is made from is absolutely critical to the success and longevity of the piece.

We allow materials to guide the design and costing process, with the ultimate goal being that the right material is chosen to ensure a timeless result.

Each environment and intended use will govern this decision as well as external factors such as availability, price, environmental concerns and aesthetic considerations.

See the images below of what we call our palette and get in touch if you have questions.
