- Many are talking today about the UN verdensmål for sustainable development, but there are fewer who actually act on them. Our collaboration with the Mater is a confirmation that sustainably produced design does not need to compromise on either quality or appearance. Select a design that is produced with care for the world, we can both get 800 luxurious conference chairs and help to reduce the klimaaftrykket, says Peter Høgh Pedersen, Managing Director of Villa Copenhagen, in a press release.

Mater has since 2006 been designbranchens answer to quality furniture and durable scandinavian aesthetics. But the ambition is far greater than simply to create Danish design with unique details.
I founded the Mater in order to create innovative and sustainable alternatives in the furniture business. The aim is to take better care of the planet, by creating more low-impact production methods of design without compromising with the quality. People have a right to know what they are buying, what they support, and how they can make a tangible difference through their purchase of designer furniture. We hope to be able to focus on in cooperation with the Villa Copenhagen, says Henrik Marstrand, founder of Mater.
Villa Copenhagen is located in the old centralpostbygning in Copenhagen from 1912. The hotel opens its doors in april 2020 and will among other things be able to offer Denmark's most expensive suite.
