AMBIENT beam sofa

Design: Fredrik Mattson

The Ambient beam sofa focuses on design and comfort. While sturdy, the design is neat, minimalistic and elegant. The seat units can easily be replaced individually, if necessary. Ambient has many options, such as different beam lengths, several armrests, screens with or without magazine holders and tables that provide a pleasant extra surface. The solid wood table tops, like the wooden seat base, are FSC® labelled. Power sockets in the table top and fittings for floor mounting are available as accessories. Frame in Colours by Materia (CbM*) powder coating. Ambient beam sofa is suitable for airports, hospitals and schools.

PICNIC stool/bench/table/metal box

Design: Marie Oscarsson

The Picnic furniture series in solid white pigmented ash with metal fixings in Colours by Materia (CbM*) powder coating, gives a robust and playful impression. Picnic is particularly suitable for the school’s lunch restaurant or as a meeting place in the office. The table has a straight side and a rounded side, making it easy to furnish with the straight side against a wall and the rounded side out into the room. The bench seat follows the same shape and has an optional grey felt pad for increased sitting comfort. The pad is easily attached to the underside of the bench using velcro. With a stool or two in the same finish, the table’s short ends can be used for additional seating. For the Picnic series there is also a designed metal box with four electrical or USB sockets connected with a black and white textile cable. The box also comes empty for potted plants, cutlery, spices, note pads and pens.

RO easy chair/sofa

Design: Mattias Stenberg

The Ro easy chair/sofa invites from afar and gives a feeling of immersion when you sit down. Comfort and a long-term approach are at the heart of this design. The seat’s comfort comes from Dymetrol®, an elastic fabric with a springy effect. The back and armrests cushions, held in place by a mesh fabric, are soft and full. The mesh fabric is available in three different colours and the frame in Colours by Materia (CbM*) powder coating. Fastening the removable fabric and leather upholstery with concealed velcro is a practical feature. Ro is suitable for all meeting places that need comfortable and durable seating.

TODAY bench

Design: Mia Cullin

The Today bench is characterised by being flexible and easy to position. The many connection options, allow you to extend the design indefinitely for places like schools, shopping malls and offices. The system consists of benches in different lengths, and a corner section with seating space, side table or planting pot. The units can be connected lengthwise as well as angled in any direction. The benches can also stand independently. The leg design gives an elegant impression in chrome or Colours by Materia (CbM*) powder coating finish. The parts can easily be replaced if necessary and the solid wood table top can be sanded down and relacquered. Under-seat electrical sockets/USB are available as accessories.

UNI LARGE conference table

Design: Axel Bjurström

Uni Large is a versatile conference table tailored to modern meeting places. It is subtly designed to work in several types of environments. The richness in design of the conference table is exemplified by the foot’s die-cast details and the chamfered edge of the table top. Taken together with its scaled-down structure, the table almost seems to float. The relatively low foot means that chairs can be placed anywhere around the table. Also chairs with high armrests can usually be pushed completely under the table top. The table is available in a number of formats and finishes and is easy to customise. Frame in Colours by Materia (CbM*) powder coating. A cable lid and electrical/USB sockets are available as options. The fabric covered electrical cable is led from the cable trench down through the pillar. In the case of two electrical sockets, the cables are gathered together and routed down with only one cable in the pillar, giving a tidy impression.

Product launch March 1!

Sneak peek of our new products 2021.

2020 has been a strange and trying year for many, also for us at Materia. It was a year in which we needed to change and adapt to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. Equipped with new insights and ways of working, we are now looking forward to 2021 and hope it will be a year in which we can meet again in person.

Despite all the turbulence, we have been fully focused on developing new, well-designed products. These exciting novelties will be launched in the spring of 2021, but we don’t yet know exactly how and when. We are awaiting the recommendations of the Swedish authorities. Therefore, as an early Christmas present, we are offering a sneak peek in the film below.

Newcomer 2020

The design scene is home to a number of promising young talents just waiting to meet their public. The Newcomer award is our way of honouring these young bold designers. Since the award was established in 2006, we have provided an international platform for young designers reaching out and making a name for themselves in a highly competitive industry. We see the Newcomer award as an opportunity to add a touch of playfulness to our range and think even further outside the box.

The 2020 winner is Alexander Rehn and the product is called Rocca. Alexander comes from Munich, Germany, where he studied interior architecture and product design at The Academy of Fine Arts.

Alexander had a clear idea for his product from the start. He noticed how sedentary we have all become, especially in our offices. His aim was to create a playful stool inspiring the body to move, a way of staying active.

What makes the Rocca stool unique is its simplicity. The ring encourages movement and the seat is comfortable, together they interact to form a unit. At the same time the stool is easy to carry around the modern activity-based office. The name Rocca is a play on “rocking chair”, as you sit and rock on the stool.

Alto has won German Design Award 2020

We are very happy to announce that ALTO has won the prestigious German Design Award 2020 for Excellent Product Design in the category: Furniture.

The Statement of the Jury:
The combination of filigree underframe and voluminous, inviting cushions gives the sofa its own unmistakeable identity, which is reinforced by the unusual height of the surface of the seat. An interesting piece of furniture, with a comfortable, modern high-quality appearance, which is also functional.

Design Alto: Mattias Stenberg

A new

Welcome to a new We have rebuilt the website from scratch and in addition to it being responsive (the content automatically adjusts to fit different screen sizes), we are introducing a number of improved features which we believe you will enjoy. For instance it has never been easier to be inspired. Images can be sorted according to type of environment, furniture or case study. Another feature we have added is the automatic compilation of product details to create a product sheet when you choose to print or save as a PDF. Take some time to have a look around the site and see how the new features can help you.

New communications concept: Design meets…

2014 marks the start of a new communications concept. At Materia, we view our work in a larger perspective, where meetings between people is the driving force for innovative furniture design. We have taken this onboard and highlight it in the “Design meets…” concept which for instance can be seen as printed advertisements in trade magazines and newspapers.

“The interior design sector has already reacted very positively to the new concept. Basing the communicative approach on the everyday lives of people and how our furniture design encounters users provides a genuine and authentic picture of our products,” says Tobias Söder, sales and marketing manager at Materia.

The new concept is also integrated into Materia’s new website, where it has become easier to find inspiration and information.
