Our branch in Prague belongs to the matériO Paris network which originated in 2001 as an information and education centre for new materials. We focus primarily at innovative and original materials, which are specific for their technical properties, appearance, production technology, environmental friendliness, or other features. Our clients are creative people – architects, designers, students, fashion designers, and others – who come to us to see and feel materials and get adequate information. The library has organized a number of educational and awareness rising events to educate the public and to disseminate information not only about innovative materials kept in out collection, but about materials as such. Our consultants teach at the Academy of Applied Arts, Architecture and Design a subject called materiology, the library has organized or co-organized a number of seminars and workshops on innovations in the world of materials, design trends, presentations and lectures of renowned designers and architects, or exhibitions of materials.
