Based in Manhattan, Matter is a gallery or showroom that offers a selection of North American and international design: Patricia Urquiola, the Bouroullec brothers or Zaha Hadid. Beautiful design, yes, but the New York address also presents itself as a platform for discussion around the discipline, animated by the actors of the profession but also by simple amateurs. Founded in 2003, Matter has also launched a publishing house through Matter Made. The goal? To improve the international perception of American design. During the last New York design week, the latest Made collection, named “MMXXII” was presented. On the program, pieces inspired by “ancient civilizations and science fiction films, traditional craft techniques” designed by renowned guests such as Ana Kraš or Faye Toogood, as well as Jamie Wolfond, designer new member of the Matter family. Founder Jamie Gray is also on hand.
A launch that coincided with the opening of a large loft space above their historic space, where all the designers in their catalog are gathered. The space on the street is now used as a gallery and named Matter Projects. The space will host the first-ever solo exhibition by sculptural artist Simone Bodmer-Turner.
