Textiles are essential to the work of any interior designer, but the focus is typically on aesthetics and cost instead of what a material contains or where it comes from. Prior to new materials coming to market, researchers inform new development, incorporating the latest innovations in technology, sustainability, and more. Carol Derby, vice president of research and development, Designtex, and Andrew Dent, Ph.D. vice president, Library and Materials Research, Material ConneXion, will discuss their work at the forefront of material innovation and insights into the future of design.
