Founded in 2006 by Henrik Marstrand, Mater is a conscious and ethical design brand with a strong design philosophy and great emphasis on 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.

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 minimizes adverse social and environmental impacts.

Henrik MarstrandFounder & CEO

Mater offers such a vision-driven optimism in creating in-our-time products that we 
designers feel a part of a mission. As a designer you sometimes wonder if we really need more design objects.
 But with the go-getting spirit at Mater you are not only sure that your designs will hit the marketplace, you're 
also confident that they'll make a difference.
