News | Shell Chair with new upholstery

 

It is with great excitement that Mater is now launching a new upholstered version of the Mater Shell Chair designed by the American designer Michael W. Dreeben. The new Shell Chair is a result of an improved seating experience and durable quality of materials making it suitable for both commercial and residential use.

Together with the most recognised leather supplier in Denmark, Sorensen Leather, Mater has selected most genuine, beautiful and durable leathers that fit with Mater’s values and aesthetic.

The collaboration with Sorensen is bringing a new softness and tactility to the Mater collection”, says founder and CEO, Henrik Marstrand.

The contemporary and elegant silhouette defined by the sculptural wooden frame and a ‘floating’ seat, creates an interaction of stability and dynamism.

A layer of foam on the FSC certified veneer shell is making the seating of the chair a more comfortable and soft experience. The leather upholstery is available in two leathers by Sorensen; Dunes, a chrome-free aniline leather in an anthrazite black and rust color giving the material a beautiful and patinated look over time - and Ultra, an 'everyday' leather that is durable, easy to maintain and resists stains.

The frame is crafted in solid FSC certified oak with a choice of three different water-based stains; soaped, sirka grey and a black stain.

Shell will be available in stores from January.
