We enhance people, the planet and our company in everything we do. 

We were founded on principles of efficient and responsible use/reuse of materials, which is why during the production process we recycle more than 88 percent of our manufacturing waste and the remainder is incinerated to make electricity. Striving towards zero waste has created recycling programs for anything that can be recycled. It's impossible not to leave an environmental footprint and we do all that we can to mitigate it.

Positive Change

By collaborating with designers, partners and suppliers who share our values, we combine our expertise with specialist knowledge to bring about positive, sustainable change.


As a global design company, we have a responsibility to reduce our climate impact and ensure fair working conditions. We have set ambitious goals for ourselves and strive to be transparent about our progress.


Here Now

Environmentally Conscious

We source and produce most of our designs within a 70-mile radius of Charlotte, NC. Our discernment in materials and processes result in lasting and durable products that are timeless yet present in their application. From organic foam and water-based lacquer finishes to equally discerning suppliers, we've built sustainability into here now from the start.



A Circular Economy

Our goal is simple but effective: successful corporate social responsibility with the focus on a sustainable world. To achieve this, we take steps in all areas that help us and our clients to create beautiful and functional furniture with as little impact on the earth as possible. In doing so, we do not only look at our own activities, we are also constantly looking for the optimal circular working methods with our suppliers and clients. We differentiate three activities in our approach: Circular-furniture, Re-furniture and Outlet-furniture.



Turning Waste into Furniture

Founded in Copenhagen in 2006, Mater was created to be the pioneering global brand with sustainability embedded in its core.

From the very beginning, the ambition was to inspire a global design audience and engage people into sustainable thinking. Mater combines sustainability and circular production using waste, with timeless design, through collaboration with an external base of well-established and new design talents.

Through years of research and testing, Mater invented Matek®, a patented, unique material that enables the company to make furniture from waste by combining fibre with a binder. Coffee bean shells, extracted during the roasting process, are an example of fibre material. Sawdust from wood production is another. The binder material is made from plastic waste or a plastic-based alternative. The mix of materials results in a unique compound suitable for press moulding - a well-known technique in the furniture industry.



Carefully Crafted in California

Emblem is dedicated to producing furniture that embodies durability and sustainability. Proudly American-made, the company is situated in California, where it strictly adheres to rigorous air quality and environmental standards.


Every piece, whether standard or custom, is crafted in accordance with Emblem's sustainability principles, which reflect its commitment to creating long-lasting furniture. The company believes in extending the lifespan of its products, keeping them out of landfills. Through responsible material sourcing, the use of low VOC adhesives and finishes, waste reduction measures, energy-efficient practices, and sourcing materials locally, Emblem endeavors to produce furniture that is both environmentally conscious and enduring.
