MateriO’ is both an offline showroom and an online database of innovative materials. Designers looking for the right materials can go there for inspiration or advice. MateriO’s headquarters are Paris, but there’s a Brussels branch as well.
In addition, MateriO’ founded a textile database at TIO3 in Ronse, containing 200 innovative samples. You can check these out and look up information about their manufacturer/producer on the index cards. MateriO’ and TOI3 regularly host inspirational talks on innovative resources.
