Material Source Studio is the very first of its kind in bringing together product and material insight and inspiration, plus much more, under one roof, and offered all year round.
Born out of a shared passion to create an inspirational hub to serve the North West's architecture and design community, we chose Manchester, UK, to launch our Studio concept.
On visiting the Hanover Building, you'll find world-class products and materials to suit every project, from hospitality, workplace and healthcare, to residential, retail, education and the public realm.
Alongside established products and materials, you'll also discover new makers that are pushing the boundaries, fuelling thought, discussion, ideas and exciting collaborations.
In addition to our 40+ partners is an 80-seat theatre, a 300+ book library, an 18-person CPD studio, 7 meeting spaces, a podcast studio & a gallery.
Manchester is just the beginning. We have plans to take our offering global. Watch this space.
Inspired by Joy Division’s Love Will Tear Us Apart. A human being has the capacity to be their own best friend and their own worst enemy with the blink of an eye. We are both Saint and Sinner. Jury and Executioner. Frenemy explores the depths of the human psyche and social conscious.
Plastic Whale Table & Chairs
This incredible statement piece is the result of our state-of-the-art circular manufacturing. It is equally as attractive as it is practical, and is sure to add the WOW factor to any meeting room. PET plastic bottles are fished by volunteers directly from canals, processed into a felt product that is then pressed and made into beautiful furniture. The table design and sturdy oak legs are reminiscent of the structure of a whale and the chair legs use recycled metal waste.
