Materialise Interiors is an award-winning, Brighton-based interior design company run by Chloe Bullock, working for clients in Brighton, London and the South East, offering sustainable, healthy and vegan interior design for commercial and residential clients.
- We are growing more and more aware of where things come from, the people & processes involved and the impact on the planet. So to support this, Chloe helps clients by creating spaces and specifications that have a lower impact on the planet and people - whilst also looking luxurious!
- We are reported to be spending 90% of our time indoors and our spaces are increasingly made more and more air tight. So it's important we are mindful of what we put in those spaces with us as inside air quality can often be many times worse than outside.
ANIMAL FRIENDLY, HUMAN FRIENDLY, PLANET FRIENDLY INTERIOR DESIGN

She has worked collaboratively with graphic designers, joiners, sign makers and builders since 2005 so can also help with rebranding and oversee an entire fit out including branding and shopfront if required.

Materialise Interiors can offer clients vegan and cruelty-free as an option for the design and specification of their business or home interiors. It's very easily and effectively done and alternative specifications can be shown as part of the design process. Chloe was the first interior designer in the UK to gain the certification - which complements her background in sustainable interior design.
FitWel® is part of the healthy building movement and is a building standard which advances human health and wellness in buildings and communities. In other words - it's a new approach to healthy building design which makes the building work for it's users rather than the other way around. The standard covers air and water quality, nourishment, healthy lighting and daylight, fitness, mind and comfort. The standard is science-based and evidence-based and is proven to greatly improve the user experience, resulting in happier, more engaged and productive people. I can apply these principles to clients projects and help with certification.
Chloe is also a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. The organisation encourages industry to work together on challenges that society faces.
