Material was founded in 2017

by Andrea Reynders, Anna Brown, and Gillion Carrara.


MATERIAL is a collective of designers with a shared commitment to a creative practice that redefines the intersection of artisanal tradition with contemporary silhouettes.

MATERIAL will create curated, experiential gatherings in artist spaces that address an aspect of the design practice, such as ideation, collection design, and material sourcing. 

We believe that audiences and designers benefit by a more meaningful dialogue. By bringing together diverse designers and artisans who create and manufacture locally, we intend to rekindle this designer-patron relationship in a MATERIAL way.
