Ana Kras was born in Serbia in 1984 and is now based in NYC. Kras' distinct approach fuses sculpture and craft aesthetics with minimalist functionality and a whimsical approach to color. Her Slon line for Matter Made takes two simple forms -- a tube and a slab -- and a pastel meets earthy color palette to achieve a number of standard options and limitless custom variations.
Matter is pleased to welcome the work of Seattle artist John Hogan. Hogan has dedicated his craft to a single medium: glass. Hogan's manipulation of texture, shape, color, and the optical qualities of glass creates objects that dazzle from every angle. Reflections, transparency, and the bending of light bring complexity to simple forms.
Visibility is an industrial design studio based in New York City which focuses on the purity of an idea, as well as its material and formal actualities. Their Matter Made Kyuzo capsule collection includes desk accessories and other small goods that exemplify the fusion between technology & design.
Matter is extremely pleased to announce an exhibition of furniture and lighting by Belgian design duo Muller Van Severen. The exhibition will feature over ten iconic works, presenting on overview of their first two collections; all works will be available for sale. This will be Muller Van Severen’s highly anticipated U.S. debut.
New designs by Bec Brittain are now available. This up-and-coming lighting designer, known for her fascination with crystalline structures, has just released several new designs. Click on the image above to see the fresh additions as well as her other work on offer.
Teak is a wonderful material with which to work, and we are always excited when one of our designers puts it to good use. Shown here is a detail of Matt Gagnon's Knit Fort woven from teak and rubber cord. First shown a few years ago during New York design week, we recently set it up and have fallen in love all over again.
Karl Zahn's Momentum series is now on the web site. We showed this work for the first time during NY Design week. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind study in materiality and motion. All are handmade by the designer.
