New Materials for the Modern Urbanite

While most companies funnel their energy into good product design, Matteria, a European company, believes that aesthetic appeal is sometimes just a by-product of an interesting material. Here are some of my favorite picks from their very eclectic, eco-friendly line:

Matteria hanger

Don’t forget to show your closets the same amount of love as the living room and kitchen. These paper hangers, made from 100-percent recyclable newspaper, add much-needed color to your closet space, or just help you be a bit nicer to the environment.

If your style is of the DIY variety, these graphic fabrics can certainly aid you in your endeavors. They’re meant to reflect urban landscapes, but hold a classic appeal as well.

Matteria tree design

This tree just screams “spring.” With a variety of designs available, each one is constructed from scraps of vintage wallpaper and comes with a kit for easy application.

Matteria kit

With most of the population struggling with storage issues, these stackable bowls offer a small solution to the problem. They come in a variety of colors and dimensions and can be used in the kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.

If you like to take a walk on the wild side every now and then, Matteria’s line of unique products might be for you. Just beware of hefty out-of-country shipping costs and higher price tags for rare materials.
