Space Copenhagen's coat stand hits a high note in form and function. Fabricated in recycled aluminum, it's also flat-packed for energy-efficient shipping, according to manufacturer Mater's eco-conscious ethos. The unique arrangement of 9 discs in varying sizes and angles is fit for hanging more coats, as well as hats, scarves and umbrellas. It also transforms an otherwise prosaic hall or corner essential into something akin to a modern sculpture.

“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.
