Earth Stool represents classic Scandinavian design with an ingenious eco-technology update. Designed by Danish architect Eva Harlou, the metal bar stool has a press-molded seat and backrest made from compounds that include plastic production waste and other fiber-based materials. The Coffee Edition employs spent shells from the beans as well as discarded insulin pens while the Mask Edition uses the spent grain —or “mask” in Danish—from beer production mixed with recycled industrial plastic.

“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.
