Conscious Chair 3162
Renowned Danish furniture designer and architect Børge Mogensen’s 1958 dining chair gets an eco-friendly revival from Mater in union with 3 of his creatively inclined grandchildren. Conscious Chair 3162 is made of FSC-certified wood with the seat and backrest in the brand’s Circular Materials, a mix of upcycled fiber-based waste materials (either from coffee bean production or wood manufacturing) and recycled plastic. Marking the first time that a Mogensen design has been relaunched in a different material than the original, the sustainable chair comes in soaped oak, black lacquered beech or grey beech versions.

“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.
