The Materials Design Lab (MDL), opened in 2014 by Chris Lefteri, is part of the National Design Centre in Singapore and aims to stimulate new levels of material-centric innovation by providing a vibrant place where designers and material suppliers can congregate to network, inspire each other and conduct business.
“Materials Design Lab provided an excellent “workshop” for our visiting Interior Architecture students from UNISA at the 2015 Singapore Design Week. The generosity with which they shared knowledge, combined with the hands on activities, continue to inspire our design students in their ongoing studies. The publications they produce on Materials and Manufacturing Processes are a valuable resource for designers at any stage of their career.”
