The centre for soft material techniques

LES COMPAGNONS DU DEVOIR PRESENT THEIR CENTRE FOR SOFT MATERIAL TECHNIQUES

PEMS – the centre of excellence for soft materials

The “Procédéthèque” of Soft Materials is a repository of traditional savoir-faire, an observatory of contemporary practices and a trend-spotting unit. It combines a sample-making workshop, a network of contributors, an archiving service, an online search engine and a drop-in centre – accessible by appointment at the PEMS – run by a team of experts.

The archive unit brings together a vast body of assemblies and sample finishes in a large variety of materials, all classified by professional criteria and by specific qualities.

Thanks to the drop-in centre and the bilingual (English & French) online search engine, the content of the centre of excellence will have an international reach.

Open for one-off consultations or business meetings, educational support, awareness-raising, or for research to develop bespoke samples, this platform seeks to enhance and disseminate expertise on soft materials to all professionals and those interested in this field. 

Currently under development, the Procédéthèque should welcome its first visitors in early 2017.

The Compagnons du Devoir will be available on their stand at the show to tell you more about this new project.
