Disc Marble Table
Mater’s marble-topped side table features a “milled” or curving underside that imparts a sense of lightness to the solid stone. Handcrafted with a traditional lathe still used in small workshops across Rajasthan, Disc’s tabletop comes in Indian marble hues of jungle green or brown. Tapering steel table legs are a graceful complement.

“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.
