In versions to seat either 2 or 4 for dining, Danish brand Mater gives a heritage slatted table an eco-minded edge. With Ocean, designer duo Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel’s original wood-slatted table has been refashioned in a material made of 960 grams of ocean plastic waste from used fishnets (primarily from Denmark’s west coast) and recycled hard plastic. The table comes in black or sand with a gunmetal-colored steel frame and suits both indoor and outdoor use. And Ocean’s innovative style merited a 2019 Wallpaper Design Award.

“I wanted to launch a brand that has a strong vision to create timeless and beautiful design, based on an ethical business strategy,” says Henrik Marstrand, the chief executive and founder of Mater, the Danish design brand. Named for the Latin word for “mother,” the company signals a return to meaningful values of sustainable, eco-conscious and socially responsible design, Henrik says, and away from the self-conscious pursuit of “name” products that can confer a false sense of status. For its collections of lighting and furniture, Mater looks to both emerging talent and established designers as well as working methods that support local craft traditions, laborers and the environment. A member of the United Nations Global Compact, Mater has also been named Best Debut Design Brand by Wallpaper magazine.
