Eva Harlou’s redesign of a classic bar stool with Danish maker Mater under the Earth Studio brand offers a sustainability minded choice. Earth is created in 2 versions—with its seat made from either recycled plastic packaging waste or FSC-certified oak timber—while the steel tube frame is also reusable. Lightweight and solidly durable, it’s easy to pick up and move around wherever extra seating is desired.

“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.
