Material Stories – The right choice of materials for more sustainable design

We are designers by heart, even though we don't make chairs. We use our creative skills to generate application ideas, future concepts and user scenarios for existing and emerging materials. In short, we generate the material context for tomorrow's products.

Fields of Work

  • Product Design
  • Packaging
  • Communication Design
  • Exhibitions

Material Stories

We support the right choice of materials at the early stage of the design process. We foster tutoring on materials and trends, share updated publications, and grow a collection of the most remarkable materials from around the world.

Aart van Bezooijen founded Material Stories to bridge the gap between the materials industry and world of design. Paula Raché supports in projects involving graphic, packaging and exhibition design.
