Our philosophy is non-dualistic, our objects and ideas originate in the genuine condition of raw materials in which the weight of the material – be it light or heavy – is part of its constituent value.
The materials we use can sometimes be reclaimed, sometimes raw or precious, but they always have intense expressive power.
Inspired by materials, the shapes, volumes, and lines are kept in a minimalist aesthetic with monumental, brutalist traits.
The material richness is complemented by the expressive appearance of hand-treated surfaces so that the final piece retains the traces of the process.
Materia aims at bringing back and valuing the human makers in objects that are personal, expressive, and bearing the artisan fingerprints. The traditional craftsmanship is mixed with experimental procedures to transform the matter into statement pieces with unexpected textures.
