"The Dome Lamp is an iconic representation of what is light. Light emanates evenly in a 360 degree pattern from its source (such as in the case with the sun) so therefore the most honest approach toward the design of a lamp to me was a spherical solution. The design is essentially a globe form hollowed out to allow the light to distribute. Such a mathematical solution enables the design to be timeless and familiar however completely new in approach as it is more of an engineering solution than a fashion based one". - Todd Bracher
Todd explains his collaboration with Mater: "Working with Mater is a chance for a designer to connect with local artisans to exchange ideas. With globalization the world is losing indigenous crafts which is why an awareness of preserving such crafts is increasingly important. They're not only expressions of our cultural diversity; they also represent a wealth of experiences and know-how that are essential resources in developing novel concepts and designs."
Mater - latin for mother - is a Danish design brand, recognized and applauded as a global pioneer in creating relevant yet sustainable, eco-conscious and socially responsible design.
"I founded Mater in 2006 and presented it to a global audience for the first time at Maison&Objet Paris in august 2007. I wanted to launch a brand that has a strong vision to create timeless and beautiful design based on an ethical business strategy. Mater combines exclusive furniture and lighting with working methods that support people, local craft traditions and the environment. An external base of established and fresh design talent creates our commissioned collections which are both suitable for contract and private homes". - Henrik Marstrand, CEO & Founder
