Material Matters is based on the following idea – as designers we should know the materials we use. We should understand where they come from, how they are sourced, their social, environmental and economic impact. We should seek to understand their histories in relation to human habitation and we should speculate upon their possible futures.
Think of a humble red house brick.
Now think about the age of the planet and all its matter.
Think of a highly refined and beautifully glazed ceramic brick. Now think of those who dug up clay deposits in Brunswick in the 1850s. Think about the process of extracting material from the earth, and think about the movements of these materials all over the world.

We respectfully acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Eastern Kulin Nation as traditional custodians, on whose unceded lands we work and live. We respectfully acknowledge elders – past, present and emerging. And we extend our deepest respects to all First Nations peoples. In the context of the work we do, we express gratitude for our shared connection through place, to the oldest continuing cultures on earth.
