PAINTS & FINISHES
TONHere is our selection of the most exciting wall finishes sourced from SCIN, a company set up to provide surface materials for the architectural profession. SCIN works with designers - often small practices - to create material collections that best suit a project, using a library of more than 4,000 materials and a key-wordsearch database. Part of SCIN's process is the constant review and evaluation of new materials. Director Annabelle Filer says: 'Part of the joy in the work we do is to pick out products from other industries and show them to architects, who in turn use their creativity to extend our initial thought process.'
