What is the sampleroom Concept

The name comes from the sample rooms we visited over the years. Every fashion house, material producer, chemical or machinery manufacturers has its their sample rooms. It is the go-to place where designers, specifiers and producers gather to develop the next collection and review their prototypes. With this core concept in mind, APLF aimed at re-creating this experience online through our new sourcing platform – sampleroom. sampleroom is the heart of co-creation for the next hits.
