Although our world of work becomes more digital and virtual, the way we specify materials for interiors still retains its ‘analog’ nature, selecting materials based upon physical samples that we receive from manufacturers or as part of a showroom display. In this talk, we take a short term and longer view of the value of hands-on specification and what modern digital technologies might mean for it in the future. Presented by Material ConneXion EVP of Research, Dr. Andrew Dent. Material ConneXion, a SANDOW company, is the leading materials-driven design platform. Talk followed by happy hour at Mill Village Collective is a showcase co-located with Cisco Brothers showroom: 1014 MiLL Ave. Free Parking or ride with Go Anywhere Shuttle.
