This is where we guide you towards further information about who we are, how we think and what is happening at Materia right now. There is really only one way of getting to know us better – come and visit us in Tranås!

Materia develops and manufactures design furniture and interior furnishings for creative meeting areas and dynamics organisations. From the very beginning, we have refused to make compromises. Our approach is characterized by innovative design with the user in the centre, this is how we think when we materialize ideas.

Materia was set up in 1992 by Kersti Sandin and Lars Bülow, both architects and industrial designers. The combination of innovative design philosophy with focus on the user and being uncompromising when selecting materials and manufacturing methods quickly lead to success. Today Materia is a part of the interior design group Kinnarps, and our meeting concepts and products are used all over the world. The following summarises our journey:

  • 1992 – Materia is set up in Stockholm.
  • 1994 – Own production facility started in Tranås.
  • 1998 – Main office moves from Stockholm to Tranås. “The blue factory” is also acquired.
  • 2002 – More employees taken on and production facilities expanded with “the yellow factory” for assembly work and logistics.
  • 2004 – Materia is acquired by Kinnarps and becomes an independent brand in the Group.
  • 2008 – Inauguration of a new factory in Höganloft in Tranås. 7,500 square metres with production facilities, offices and showrooms.
  • 2021 – All wood used in our furniture and interior furnishings is FSC®-certified
