The natural beauty of cork imbues Mater's Luiz Lamp with a uniquely tactile appeal. Employing traditional craftsmanship, the pendant's lampshade is made in Portugal of locally harvested cork from responsibly managed cork oak forests. Finishing off, the metal top piece is handmade in Denmark by one of the few remaining workshops that master the spun-metal art.

“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.
