Material Bank

Material Bank® is a marketplace for design professionals and brands in the architecture and design industry, providing the fastest and most powerful way to discover and sample materials.

Material Bank is the world's largest architectural and design-focused material resource library.

Material Bank was founded in 2018 by Adam I. Sandow. The company is headquartered in New York, with offices in Memphis, Tennessee and Boca Raton, Florida.

Material Bank aims to simplify the process of material search and sampling by enabling architects, designers, and corporate buyers to search hundreds of thousands of materials such as paint, flooring, and textiles across hundreds of vendors.

Material Bank's database is combined with its propriety robotic distribution facility to allow users to order samples until midnight (ET) to be delivered free of charge anywhere in the US, in one box, by 10:30 AM the next morning.


Material Bank has over 35,000 approved members who use the platform to source billions of dollars of materials for more than 75,000 construction and design projects.


Material Bank is backed by Bain Capital Ventures, Raine Ventures and Barry Sternlicht, co-founder, chairman and CEO of Starwood Capital and others. The company raised $28M in a Series B round on Apr 30, 2020. This brings Material Bank's total funding to $55M to date.
