Mater’s stunning floor lamp is an ode to the woodworker’s art, with its rounded or “turned” proportions. Conceived by Danish architects Jesper K. Thomsen and Sanne Traberg, Lathe is named for the small turning tool used by craftsmen. The lamp is fashioned in sustainably sourced oak finished in a lacquer stain with a black painted aluminium frame and linen shade.

“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.
