ABOUT MATER


"For every one of the million of products we use to improve the quality of our lives, there are associated
environmental, ethical and social consequences. While some products have a small environmental bearing,
others consume finite resources in vast quantities and are produced under conditions of labor abuse and 
environmental damage. As mature consumer societies are increasingly dominated by (physical) abundance; 
by saturation; by experiences; by virtual worlds; by individualism; by feelings of guilt and concern about the 
side-effects of unbridled consumption, status is to be had in many more ways than leading a somewhat dated 
lifestyle centered on hoarding as many branded luxury goods as possible. Mater - latin for mother - is a Danish 
design brand and recognized and applauded as global pioneer in creating sustainable, eco-conscious, socially 
responsible design. 

“I founded Mater in 2006 and presented it to a global audience for the first time at Maison&Objet in Paris 
august 2007. I wanted to launch a brand that has a strong vision to create timeless and beautiful design 
based 
on an ethical business strategy. Mater combines exclusive furniture and lighting with working 
methods that 
support people, local craft traditions and the environment. An external base of established 
and fresh design talent creates our commissioned collections. Both suitable for contract and private homes". 
- Henrik Marstrand, CEO & Founder 

Winner of Best Debut Design Brand by Wallpaper* Magazine in 2008. Member of United Nations Global 
Compact and actively involved in sustainable projects such as www.susbizindia.org.  "

    "The Dome Lamp is an iconic representation of what is light. Light emanates evenly in a 360 degree pattern from its source (such as in the case with the sun) so therefore the most honest approach toward the design of a lamp to me was a spherical solution. The design is essentially a globe form hollowed out to allow the light to distribute....
