Mono

Wilhelm Seibel I, establishes the Seibel Britannia Goods Factory in 1895. In 1911 the first branch factory, the Hessischen Metallwerke Gebr. Seibel. The company attains global recognition in 1936 with its Olympia Flatware furnished for the Olympic Village in Berlin. Thanks to the very healthy economy of the post-war years, staffing increased to almost 1000. In the '50s a major decline in the flatware industry resulted in the demise of almost 90% of all German manufacturers. Thanks to the bold leadership of Herbert Seibel, a grandson of the founder, who steered the company towards design oriented products, a catastrophe was avoided for the Hessische Metallwerke. The company was later renamed to Mono.

Mater

For every one of the million of products we use to improve the quality of our lives, there are associated environmental, ethical and social consequences. While some products have a small environmental bearing, others consume finite resources in vast quantities and are produced under conditions of labor abuse and environmental damage. As mature consumer societies are increasingly dominated by (physical) abundance; by saturation; by experiences; by virtual worlds; by individualism; by feelings of guilt and concern about the side-effects of unbridled consumption, status is to be had in many more ways than leading a somewhat dated lifestyle centered on hoarding as many branded luxury goods as possible. Mater - latin for mother - is a Danish design brand and recognized and applauded as global pioneer in creating sustainable, eco-conscious, socially responsible design.

Pallucco

Believing that “art prevails over design,” Pablo Pallucco founded his company in 1982 in Treviso, Italy. It evolved into a design-driven company and, in the 1980s, took over production of Mariano Fortuny’s iconic 1921 lamp, a piece that has been likened to sculpture.
