RIGHT NOW on materials: “In the end all design and architecture boils down to materials”

FORM Magazine - Material World

The Swedish ‘Form Magazine‘ has made a spring issue all about materials. They call it MATERIAL WORLD.

“Materials have a big role to play in our perception of design and architecture. In Form’s spring issue, we take a look at the stuff that our world is made of; everything from concrete and wood to glass and textiles. Welcome to a material world!”

Some of the topics are following:
MATERIAL LISTS Old materials, new materials and materials that fell out of flavour. Plus a few more. Form has  listed the basic elements of design.

SUPERFICIAL STATUS How does the choice of material affect a product’s status, and why is marble more valued than laminate? Daniel Golling explores these questions and much more.

MY MATERIAL Ragnhild Lekberg has met with six designers and entrepreneurs who tell us about their favourite materials.

A MATERIAL WORLD Hanna Nova Beatrice visits the Materialbiblioteket (Library of Materials) in Stockholm abd discovers all the latest material trends. This year is all about the natural and authentic.
