NATURAL MATERIAL STUDIO Changing our perception of materials
Natural Material Studio is an international design, research & consultancy studio that drive towards changing our understanding, relation and perception of materials.
We do so by working from a renewable and circular point of view, with both science, biology, chemistry, design and art as our building blocks.
Today we design bespoke objects and furnitures, supply designers and brands with natural materials, as well as offering material research, consultancy, teaching & design for companies around the world. We collaborate multi-disciplinary with scientists, experts & craftsmen from various fields to reach an uncompromising quality.
Our work is material-led, meaning the design journey is centered around the properties and qualities of the explored matter. We let the material and its narrative drive the design process.
By exploring the material limitations and opportunities, novel solutions are created. We believe that when we design from what we have of ressources available, we create more sustainable and circular solutions.
We are on a long journey, as green change wont happen over night. And we are still learning and growing. However, we have come a long way.
Since the launch in 2018 the studio has worked with and for several international well-known companies such as Frama, Leeds University, Restaurant Noma, Emperical Spirits as well as smaller fashion labels such as Canadian Moskal Designs.
For all works shines through a universal aim – a playful, yet highly ambitious exploration for possible futures of un-used matter, by using them in new contexts and combinations.
You can find all our designs and material work here, as well as explore the projects and researches we have been and are part of. For a deeper understanding of the studio and how we work, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
