Mater adds a sizable low table to its ecologically reimagined Ocean range. Originally in wood veneer, the outdoor series designed in 1955 by Jørgen and Nanna Ditzel is now reissued with its slats made from discarded fishing nets mixed with upcycled hard plastic—more than 3 pounds of ocean waste in this piece. Durable for both private and public use, the table has a sleekly curving steel-tube frame in a gunmetal finish.

“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.
