press documentation

Materia´s factory in Tranås, Sweden, is a modern plant reflecting to the very last detail our company's strong and persuasive design management.

Founded in 1992, Materia has rapidly become one of Sweden's most noteworthy designing enterprises.


Materia specialises in the development and production of furniture for the various meeting areas of a modern office.

Furniture for lobbies and waiting rooms, break rooms, cafeterias and staff restaurants. Furniture for talks and training sessions, for creative conferences and fast, mobile project meetings.

Materia works with the development of furnishing concepts that support new working models and strengthens the corporate identity of the modern company.

Our ideas are formed in consultation with psychologists, social scientists and architects. Materia exemplifies a contemporary Scandinavian artistic touch created by Kersti Sandin and Lars Bülow.

Materia develops and manufactures accessories for the public arena. Functional and architecturally designed products, quiet servants or robust exclamation marks in our mutual environment.

Materia manufactures storage products for periodicals and clothing, as well as for the handling of office waste products.

Materia's accessories are based upon careful and precise studies of function and utility. They reflect a contemporary Scandinavian artistic touch created by Kersti Sandin.
