UPDATE: June 28, 2021.

Hello everyone, with the latest COVID-19 restrictions unfolding in NSW and beyond, we just want to let you know that we’re trading as usual (following all guidelines put in place by Government.)

Our Design Studios remain by appointment only, so no change there. And there will be no change to the fabulous service from our team!

Let us know whatever we can do to assist you with your project and sampling.

Contact the team on +61 (2) 8558 3500 or

We’re in this together.

UPDATE: Tuesday 4 August, 2020

Our team in Richmond, Victoria will be working from home due to Stage 4 restrictions effective from Wednesday night (5/8/20) which will last for approx. 6 weeks.

But we have you covered! As we all so well know now, working from home is very effective! And we have our amazing Sydney sampling team on hand to get deliveries to you (home addresses if needed)

We’re in this together.

UPDATE: Monday 27 April, 2020

Our New Zealand design studio will re-open from Tuesday 28 April.

We will naturally comply with health and safety requirements around physical distancing and contactless engagement with customers. Private appointments are available or, if you’re working from home please visit our expanded digital offering to see the array of virtual solutions we have to keep you inspired with new products and collections!

Albert Einstein’s observation “that opportunity lies in the middle of crisis” is powerful in its simplicity.

I have always believed that crisis forces creative innovation and this COVID-19 crisis has no equal as a test.

What I had missed in Einstein’s quote is the opportunity is embedded in the “middle” of the crisis. As we move through this pandemic Mother of Invention is a very busy woman at our place!

At Materialised we are developing a Virtual Visit program, which will enable you to still see new product demonstrations and create wonderful mood board concepts whilst working remotely away from your sample library.

And of course, WeaveUp is perfect for searching, creating or adapting printed textures and patterns from anywhere, on nearly any device.

Our New Zealand Design Studio has had to close, but we are not closed for business. Our diligent Kiwi team are on their remote decks to serve our NZ clients seamlessly. We are a phone call away!

Our Aussie Design Studios are open for private appointment, fully sanitised with social distancing measures in place and at your disposal. You can book an appointment here.

All your Project Managers are ready to meet you on Zoom!

Keep well, and maybe take advantage of the isolation to read the books that have been begging for your attention.

Should circumstances change, we will keep you informed.

Gary Price & your friends at Materialised.

      Thank Mike!
      We and the team are indeed well!
      I trust that is true for you, Marie and the team.

      Aussies are good at handling things like this.
      It’s our pioneer spirit, or maybe our convict heritage.

      If only we could put the media on Valium and deal with the facts calmly!

      Regards, Gary Price
