Matterzoo aims to make the way you sample materials from multiple sources as painlessly simple as possible.
Using Matterzoo opens up a wealth of materials that are not available via traditional channels. By selecting and specifying materials on one convenient platform, you’ll also have more time to work on the projects you love.
Traditionally, designers rely on personal connections with brand representatives, physical sourcing trips and in-house material libraries to source for materials. These connections and resources are not available to every designer, especially ones who are just starting out or working in smaller teams.
Eventually, we aim to democratise the material sourcing process by opening up access to many more materials, as well as linking craftsmen with designers who are interested in purchasing their work.
Yes! We’re always free for designers to use. Simply provide us with a few essential pieces of information about yourself and you’ll be good to go!
However, for certain specialised materials, we would require you to provide payment details or a small additional deposit. As we expand, we’ll constantly work on making most of our listed materials always available for you to sample!
Thanks for your interest! Anyone who’s a designer or an architect can join Matterzoo. All you need to do is provide your company’s details and a billing address. This will ensure that we’re building the best platform that you can integrate into your design workflow.
We welcome design students too! Please contact email@example.com so we can get you started on requesting samples on our platform.
Like a forest, our library is always growing! We’re constantly expanding to bring you nearly every type of material imaginable, from the common to the artisanal.
If you have a material in mind that you’ll like to see on Matterzoo, we’re all ears! Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to bring in the ranges you love.
Most of the samples will not need to be returned, except for a small selection in our library. Due to the specialised nature of this group of materials, they’ll be provided on a loan basis. Simply provide us with valid payment details when you order the samples, and return them to us when you’re done!
Still, we would like to encourage our community of designers to return the samples wherever possible, and are exploring ways to implement this. In this way, we can all make a conscious effort to use only what we need.
Because Matterzoo specialises in linking designers with suppliers through the samples that we offer, it is currently not possible to make a bulk purchase directly on our platform.
However, the ability to make bulk orders is something we’re looking to implement on our platform, together with other useful features in the pipeline!
Hi! 👋 Matterzoo is the brainchild of a group of designers and manufacturers that have come together to solve a common problem that we see in the industry: a lack of equitable access to materials for projects.
Together, we’ve accumulated a diverse range of experience working on a slew of commercial and residential projects, on both the design and manufacturing sides.
We’re currently headquartered in the sunny locale of Singapore, and are building a base in both Singapore and Indonesia!
