Description

The Ocean Collection is an initiative that combines waste upcycling with an archive design from 1955. Mater has teamed up with the only fishnet waste upcycling facility in the world, conveniently placed at the western coastline of Denmark. A new innovative business model motivates fishermen across the world to send their used fishnets to the facility, paying them a fair value for this used material, rather than the used fishnets being dumped into the sea.

The Ocean Collection is characterized by its light structure with repeated slats and metal frames, combined into new modern chairs and tables.

Ocean looks back into classic design traditions, truly rethinking the rationale behind the relaunch of design classics. Originally designed in 1955 by Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel for their own personal outdoor use, Ocean represents sustainable and innovative thinking and was awarded Wallpaper* Magazines Design award in early 2019.

Dennie Ditzel, Nanna and Jørgen Ditzel’s daughter, has been overseeing the Ditzel archive since Nanna’s death in 2005. On the collaboration with Mater, she says her mother "was fascinated by new materials and always experimenting with them, so this would just be ideal for her – this new iteration is very much in her spirit."
