Who doesn't want to be sustainable? The problem is often that sustainability comes at a price, it is not always possible to create sustainable design that is just as beautiful as designs made from raw materials and to make it at the same price. While many try (which we love), not all the major design brands have switched to a completely sustainable production yet. Below you'll find a selection of the few brands we think does a great job at making sustainable design.
Mater was founded in 2006 by Henrik Marstrand and today has a large selection of beautiful sustainable modern Danish design created in collaboration with Danish designers such as Space Copenhagen.
