About

Imagine a place where color flirts with texture, where grains of wood intermingle with natural and synthetic fibers, where the fusion of glass, ceramics and metal collide, resulting in an inspiration of vision, of design, of art.

This Spring, the RISD Materials Library pilot project ushers in a novel sensory experience for everyone in the RISD community.  This space will be a place to discover new materials across disciplines, to observe applications of foreign materials and ideas, and even to test drive some of these materials yourself.

This is not just a space for students; it is a place by students–
the Class of 2010 has designated their Senior Gift to begin to support this initiative.
