Materials Collection

A browsable, searchable, and circulating collection of materials for building, interiors, designing, and art-making.

FAQs & other stuff

Can I use one of your materials in a project?

Our circulating samples must be returned in the condition in which they were borrowed. If you need a material to use, manipulate, or test, you must purchase from a manufacturer or distributor. We may be able to help you find a source. While the collection strives for relevancy, not all of the materials in the collection are currently commercially available.
