Material Bank Expands Offerings for Designers in Acquiring Architizer
Material Bank, a lifeline for designers looking to search for and receive samples from manufacturers overnight, recently announced plans to expand its offering in acquiring an invaluable database of architectural projects, Architizer. For designers, this is game-changing news that will simplify the way they work.
The acquisition melds Material Bank‘s resources with more than 3 million architectural images from 86,000 projects in Architizer‘s extensive database. Not to mention building products from 31,000 manufacturers. This synergy will power Material Bank 2.0, launching later this year.
“With an incredibly powerful database that provides seamless, curated access to building product information, Architizer allows for creativity and meaningful connections,” states Material Bank founder and CEO, Adam I. Sandow. “Architizer has built an extraordinary business with a team devoted to innovation in the architecture community—this acquisition will benefit both our users and Brand Partners, and together we will build an even more comprehensive platform for the industry.”
“It is a winning proposition to bring together Material Bank’s unparalleled database of design products with Architizer’s robust database of architectural projects,” adds Architizer’s current CEO David Weber. “We’re excited to combine our data and resources to build better tools that serve the global community of architects and designers.”
Architizer will continue to operate independently as a subsidiary of Material Bank led by Weber.
