Since their start-up in 2006, it has been Mater's mission to create a brand whose absolute focus is on being as sustainable as possible. By mixing sustainability with classic design, from older well-known designers such as Nanna Ditzel and Børge Mogensen, to newer talented designers such as Jean Francois Merillou and PEDERJESSEN, Mater has created a concept that challenges and changes the way sustainable design should be perceived.;
One of the decisive factors in Mater's quest to become as sustainable as possible is a constant rethinking of their production process. After several years of development and adaptation, they have succeeded in producing furniture that is created from materials that are considered waste by other manufacturers. For example, they use the husks from coffee beans that fall off during roasting, mixed with industrial plastic waste, to create the seat and back of the BM3162 chair. Just one example of Mater's amazing sustainability work.
In close collaboration with Børge Mogensen's grandchildren, Mater has relaunched his BM3162 chair in an updated version. However, this launch is more special than that. BM3162 is part of Mater's WASTE collection, where unsorted waste materials are used in the product to make it sustainable. This is also the first time that a Børge Mogensen collection is produced in a different material than that with which it was originally designed.
Designers from Mater
Mater has had a long series of major designers over their beautiful range. Amongst others, you will find icons such as Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel, Space Copenhagen and Børge Mogensen. As part of Mater's concept , all these designers have created classic designer furniture that is not only extremely elegant, but also sustainable.
When Henrik Marstrand started Mater in 2006, it was as one of the first and most prominent pioneers within sustainable design furniture. Right from the beginning, their mission has been based on inspiring, informing and introducing design lovers worldwide to a better understanding and perception of sustainable design. A vision which implies that one does not need to stop consumption, but instead reevaluates how one consumes.
