We performed theoretical and experimental investigations of the magnetic properties of metamaterials based on asymmetric double-wire structures. Using the multipole model for the description of metamaterials, we investigated the influence of the geometrical asymmetry of the structure on the macroscopic effective parameters. The results show that the larger wire in the system dominates the dynamics of the structure and defines the orientation and the strength of the microscopic currents. As a result the magnetization of the structure can be significantly enhanced for certain asymmetric configurations of the double-wire structure.
