Color, material and finishing is a powerful tool to alter the first impression and user tendency towards the products. Furthermore, knowledge of materials and empathy for the planet and residents should be implemented in design process. These are snapshot of how I research and match materials. All the materials are from material lab in London.

Today, 'textile' doesn't necessarily mean a traditional range of materials. With emerging innovative materials and diverse applications, the versatility and flexibility are in need. Additionally, I believe the sustainability and empathy for the planet should be implemented throughout the design process and material choices.
