About Material Depot

Material Depot is on a mission to reimagine material discovery for the architectural and design industry.

The problem - Material discovery today is a big pain for the design community

Countless hours are spent browsing to catalogues, visiting offline stores, coordinating with vendors for samples, getting quotations and finalizing materials. All of this process removes focus and causes hindrance to the process of design

The Solution - Discovery engine and AI design tools to make the process easy and seamless

We are building a digital library of materials across different categories with seamless search functionalities. On top that we are enabling the community with a image recognition tool and a digital mood board to embed the right material in the design
