AW² presents our Materials department with its three dedicated workspaces within our studio: the fabrics library, materials literature library and the materials library, resources available at our studio for our multidisciplinary design team.
Consolidating samples classified by materials family, the materials library is at the heart of the conception of our projects. Utilized by our team from the very early stages of design in order to develop a range of textures, colours and patterns, this is where the tactile nature of materials comes into play – the need to manipulate samples to better imagine and respond to the ambiance of a future project.
The fabrics library allows us to centralize all our samples of textiles and leathers classified by families of use and by colours in order to select the future coverings of our furniture, curtains and accessories.
In the materials literature library, the Materials team organizes and develops our selection of catalogues and specialized documentation. The Materials team has the pleasure of meeting with manufacturers and sales representatives in order to pre-select fabric sheets, samples and catalogues specifically for the AW² team
The choice of materials is a key step in the design process. It allows us to formulate connections between the exterior architecture and the interior ambiance, to create unique contexts and to meet the specific requirements of each project.
