At BROS we are always looking for ways to create beautiful and functional spaces for our clients. One of the most important aspects of design is choosing the right materials for each project. In this blog post, we will explain why we follow the principle of “Material follows function”, and how it helps us achieve the best results for our clients and the environment.
What does “Material follows function” mean? It means that we select materials that are suitable for the intended use and purpose of the space, rather than just for their aesthetic appeal. For example, if we are designing a kitchen, we will choose materials that are durable, easy to clean, and resistant to heat and moisture. If we are designing a living room, we will choose materials that are comfortable, cozy, and inviting.
Why do we follow this principle? Because it allows us to create spaces that are not only beautiful, but also practical and sustainable. By choosing materials that match the function of the space, we can ensure that they will last longer, require less maintenance, and reduce waste and environmental impact. For example, by using natural materials such as wood, stone, or leather, we can create a warm and organic atmosphere that is also durable and biodegradable. By using recycled or reclaimed materials such as metal, glass, or fabric, we can create a modern and eclectic look that is also eco-friendly and cost-effective.
How do we apply this principle to our projects? We work closely with our clients to understand their needs, preferences, and vision for their space. We then research and source the best materials that fit their criteria and budget. We also collaborate with local artisans and suppliers who share our passion for quality and craftsmanship. We then design and install the materials with care and attention to detail, ensuring that they complement the overall style and mood of the space.
At BROS, we believe that “Material follows function” is more than just a slogan. It is a philosophy that guides our work and reflects our values. We strive to create spaces that are not only stunning, but also functional and sustainable.
