MATER PRESS RELEASE – January 2017
Mater Shell Chair introduced with new upholstery from Kvadrat and Sorensen Leather.
It is with great excitement that Mater is now launching a new upholstered version of the Mater Shell Chair designed by the American designer Michael W. Dreeben. The new Shell Chair is a result of an improved seating experience and durable quality of materials making it suitable for both commercial and residential use.
Together with the most recognized textile and leather suppliers in Denmark, Kvadrat and Sorensen Leather, Mater has selected the most eco-friendly and sustainable fabrics and most genuine and durable leathers that fit with Mater’s values and aesthetic.
“The collaboration with Kvadrat and Sorensen is bringing a new softness and tactility to the Mater collection”, says founder and CEO, Henrik Marstrand.
The contemporary and elegant silhouette defined by the sculptural wooden frame and a ‘floating’ seat, creates an interaction of stability and dynamism.
A layer of foam on the FSC certified veneer shell is making the seating of the chair a more comfortable and soft experience. The seat upholstery will be introduced in a choice of three different Kvadrat fabrics of un-dyed new wool, 100 % recycled polyester and a durable mix fabric.
Also available in two leathers by Sorensen; Dunes, a chrome-free aniline leather in an anthrazit black and rust colour giving the material a beautiful and patinated look over time – and Tango, a black or cognac-coloured pigmented leather that is durable, easy to maintain and resists stains.
The frame is crafted in solid FSC certified oak with a choice of three different water-based stains; soaped, sirka grey and a black stain.
The Shell Dining Chair and Shell Lounge Chair is available from January 15th.
