  • 2 min read

Circular since 2006

Founded in Copenhagen in 2006, Mater was created to be the pioneering global brand with sustainability embedded in its core. From the very beginning, the ambition was to inspire a global design audience and engage people in sustainable thinking. Mater combines sustainability and circular production using waste, with timeless design, through collaboration with an external base of well-established and new design talents. Designed for both commercial and residential use, Mater strives to avoid and minimize 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 savor them.

Together Mater are committed

After years of research for more sustainable ways to create furniture, lighting, and objects Mater now work with a range of production partners with the same ambition as us, creating partnerships for change and supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Together Mater are committed to searching for new and better ways of making beautiful design - in a responsible way.

“Mater means ‘mother’ in Latin.

The name is the daily reminder of Mater small contribution to preventing the challenges 'mother earth’ faces. Design influences how Mater as humans live our lives; it shapes values, culture, and society. Unfortunately, Mater are increasingly aware that the choices made during design processes often have environmental consequences. However, as a manufacturer, Mater have the opportunity to rethink dubious practices and create an ethical and sustainable design that minimizes adverse social and environmental impacts.”
- Henrik Marstrand, Founder

"All Mater products must be designed to address one or more of the sustainable development goals. If this is not possible Mater will not produce it."
