ASID Opens Material ConneXion Library at DC Headquarters
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has launched a Material ConneXion Library at the Society’s new corporate headquarters in Washington, DC, designed by Perkins+Will. The library, launched in partnership with the American Chemistry Council, features more than 300 samples to aid design professionals in specifying healthy materials in the built environment.
The new library is segmented into eight categories including polymers, process, naturals, metals, carbon-based, ceramics, and glass. “The key aspect was offering a selection of materials beyond the standard palette for interior design that could promote a healthier interior environment,” says Andrew Dent, vice president of library and materials research at Material ConneXion.
