Acoufelt Joins Material Bank for Fast and Sustainable Sampling
Acoufelt is proud to become a brand partner with Material Bank, making the sampling of Acoufelt acoustic products easier, faster, and more environmentally friendly than ever before. As the world’s largest architectural and design-focused material resource library, Material Bank is the only place for architects, interior designers and design professionals to search materials from hundreds of leading brands and, with the click of a button, receive samples by 10:30 a.m. the next day – free of charge. The Material Bank service has revolutionized the way we search for and source sample material.
As part of Acoufelt’s desire to drive better project solutions through best-in-class tools and alliances, Material Bank represents a strategic partnership that is poised to drive a superior customer experience. The service aligns with Acoufelt’s desire to help foster stronger relationships within the design community and meet the needs of an increasingly digitized architecture and design landscape.
“We recognize the world is changing and that solutions like Material Bank enable Acoufelt to better serve our customers in a way that really meets their needs for service, customization and speed,” says Verne Markham, Managing Director for Acoufelt Americas. “Material Bank is an innovative, solutions-based company that is focused on exceeding customer expectations. We strongly believe in this partnership and look forward to seeing how it helps us elevate the customer experience for design firms across the globe.”
In November of 2019, the Acoufelt brand went live on the Material Bank website. You can now discover, curate and order Acoufelt sampling at the touch of your fingertips. As the most trusted and innovative interior acoustics company, Acoufelt feels right at home on the Material Bank website.
Material Bank turns hours of work into minutes by powering complex searches across hundreds of material manufacturers. With Material Bank, samples from multiple brands and manufacturers can be ordered, bundled and delivered overnight at no cost to the customer. Through the Material Bank ‘My Boards’ website platform, designers can create cohesive mood boards with the desired tiles, fabrics, textures and colors, which can be ordered with a single click. From there, each of the selected samples are packaged into a single box, eliminating the need for separate deliveries. By combining multiple sample orders into a single delivery, Material Bank reduces inbound packages to design firms by 75%. This results in less packaging, less transportation and less energy consumption than ever before. Material Bank provides a level of sustainability that was previously impossible.
