Conscious Table 5462
In relaunching Conscious Table 5462, from 1958 by renowned Danish designer and architect Børge Mogensen, Mater is collaborating with 3 of his grandchildren with a shared cultural heritage. Made of solid FSC-certified oak, the table can be enlarged with optional extension leaves and used both for dining and in the work space. It pairs with the reintroduced companion dining chair (also at A+R), which employs a new sustainable material for the seat and backrest, a first for a Mogensen design.
- 29.7" h x 63" w x 35.4" d (75.4x160x90cm)
- Extension leaf: 35.4" w x 15.8" d (90x40cm)

“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.
