Meet Mater Design
An ethical choice of material such as renewable or certified wood, recycled waste and new efficient energy sources is our source of inspiration.
Mater is a conscious and ethical design brand with a strong design philosophy and great craftsmanship. Through collaborations with an external base of established and fresh design talent, Mater combines exclusive high-end furniture and lighting, with working methods that support people, local craft traditions and the environment. The aesthetic of Mater has clear references to Scandinavian minimalism and the designs are all made with sustainably or ethically sourced materials.
Designed for both commercial and residential use, Mater strive to avoid and minimise any adverse impact on society, by following ethical and sustainable production criteria and creating products that will both stand the test of time and inspire the consumer to cherish and savour them.
Creating classic, timeless and durable design is at the heart of the Danish design industry and we take pride in preserving this by commissioning designers of both Danish and international talent. Our aesthetic reflects our dedication to high-quality materials, a simple style and a color scheme of calm, organic muted tones.
Commissioned designers work with exquisite craftsmanship using genuine materials, such as certified wood, leather and natural fibers and focusing on clean lines and fine detailing. Simple, organic and modern shapes add an understated, yet interesting aesthetic appeal. The Mater collection is an ongoing interplay of exquisite design talent, shared wisdom from craftsmen and master artisans, sustainable techniques, premium materials and reflective insights.
“When bringing new products to the market our priority is not focused on WHAT we launch but we really try to define WHY we launch it, in an ethical context. Are we supporting a recycled material or supporting a new eco friendly material? Is there a good supporting story with the craftsmen? Those answers define WHY we are on the market”. – Henrik Marstrand, Founder and CEO
“Mater means ‘mother’ in Latin. The name is the daily reminder of our small contribution to preventing the challenges ‘mother earth’ faces. Design influences how we as humans live our lives; it shapes values, culture and society. Unfortunately, we are increasingly aware that the choices made during design processes often have environmental consequences. However, as a manufacturer, we have the opportunity to rethink dubious practices and create ethical and sustainable design that minimises adverse social and environmental impacts.”
