The growing variety of materials available for interior applications makes the selection and sampling process evermore complex and time-consuming. This book in the Construction and Design Manuals series offers an overview of all materials suited for walls, ceilings, and floors, as well as stand-alone objects. Traditional and new materials are described in a knowledgeable and practical manner, providing information and inspiration for creating interiors.
It is not only the material itself that determines the appearance of a surface, but also the design and arrangement of the joints: next to the material surface, the chosen laying pattern is a key aspect that influences the spatial effect. This sampler therefore includes a large array of patterns. It conveys fundamental knowledge of materials and their applications, and thus serves as a reference book, a sampling guide, and a go-to compendium for students.
