Danish designers Søren Pedersen and Lasse Jessen essay a sculptural wall wall object with a butterfly-like center bend made from a single metal sheet. Rendered in either polished stainless steel or brass, Imago makes an intriguing point of reflection in an entry, hallway or bedroom or on any wall as a decorative element. Handmade by skilled artisans, the gleaming sphere testifies to the tradition of metal craft honed over generations in Moradabad, Northern India.

“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.
