We were approached by the Danish furniture brand Mater Design and commissioned to design furniture with them for a new range of furniture. Welded metal tubes we used to create a hanging wine storage unit and a wall storage unit. Mater has a beautiful palette of materials that we have been inspired by and will use as inserts for these boxes. Simon Astridge’s simple line sketches were used alongside digital collages as a way of communicating ideas to the CEO and founder of Mater. The hand drawn lines reflect the imperfectiveness and playfulness of welding metal rods in the proposals.
This new furniture range for Mater Design is being launched at the 2017 Milan Design Festival
