Mater introduce two new designs to their stable of chairs. And their circular stats stand up.

Mater, the Danish furniture design company, are not new to jump on the sustainability train. Established in 2006, conscious and ethical practices have been at the core of their business since inception. They don’t mince their green jargon when it comes to production criteria, which is marvellous. And we chance a sneak peek at two new designs coming to our shores.

First up is the ‘Nova Sea’ chair, which is made from 96 per cent discarded fishnet, collected from the ocean. That’s 2.75kg of circular material and the upholstered seat, should you wish one, is crafted from 98 per cent post-consumer recycled polyester.

Second, is the ‘Lounge’ chair designed by Space Copenhagen. It’s fluid, sculptural and generously proportioned for maximum comfort. A solid wood frame, in sustainably sourced oak or beech wood, provides a gently rounded backrest and, should you wish to decorate matchy-matchy (no judgement), there’s an entire ‘Lounge’ family including dining chairs and high stools.

Both designs available from Cult in New Zealand and Australia.
