Material Connexion is a resource library of new and innovative designer materials. In a nutshell, it’s the industrial designerâ€™s candy store. Their scientifically designed materials have shown up in everything from Nikeâ€™s new Air Jordans (polymer mesh wire shown in photo), to architect David Rockwellâ€™s new buildings (light emitting concrete). One of our favâ€™s was magnetic primer, just spray it on a wall (or anything else) and you can use magnets hang up your sketches.
If you canâ€™t find a material that meets your needs, Material Connexion has a team of scientists on staff to create custom ones. Offices are located in New York, Bangkok. Cologne, Milan, and an internet library is available on their website.
