the brands taking part

Material Matters showcases a curated mix of over 40 world-leading brands, designers, makers and organisations to celebrate the importance of materials and their ability to shape our lives. From product design, furniture and lighting to metal, ceramics, textiles or technology, the brands and makers on display are at the leading edge of contemporary design.



Arper will be showing the new Catifa Carta by Lievore Altherr Molina. Its shell is  made of PaperShell - a new innovative material made of composite wood by-product and timber waste. Catifa Carta significantly reduces its environmental impact by doing what trees do: sequestering carbon dioxide. At the end of its life cycle, the 100% fossil-free material can be reduced to biochar and when mixed with soil, biochar becomes a home for mycelium and microbes to create new life.
