Over the winter of 2013, I had the privilege to help the Makerhaus, a hip maker shop in the Seattle area, to implement a materials library for the use of their eclectic members.

A system to connect MakerHaus users with featured distributors

MakerHaus members are part of Seattle's maker community and cover a wide range of professions from craftsmen to architects and designers.

We started with a designated wall in the loft area of the Haus.

From the start, we had a great number of stunning material samples, and were waiting for more in the mail.

Prototyping

A hanger configuration worked best for space saving and keeping the samples protected.
