WHAT WE DO

The MATto materials library aims to help companies and their designers achieve success by improving their production processes and guiding their choice of the materials that best meet their needs.

To this end, the materials library aims to meet the needs of companies in every phase of project development, so as to help them identify:

  • ideas for new future products
  • improvements to products in the design or prototype phase
  • improvements to products already in production
  • ideas for an alternative and innovative use of existing materials and/or processes
  • guidelines for the development of innovative process/product solutions
  • recommendations for the development of sensory and/or environmentally sustainable projects

Every design project has specific characteristics due to its aims, context and materials.

From design to production, we can guide you through all the phases that go into making your design project a reality.
