In 2006, Henrik Marstrand took a hard look at the many industries turning to more conscious and ethical production, and found that within furniture and lighting, no one was really doing much. “This was our opportunity. We wanted to be different and create something that would be beautiful, that would last, but that also carried with it a good story about where it started its life,” explains Marstrand. Today, Mater works with designers and producers across the world. “Designers often come to us with ideas about designs and materials, and then we work with them to make their visions come to life.”
