Materia Designs strives to blur the lines between art, design, utility, work and life. Drawing from their combined backgrounds in choreography, fashion, landscape design and woodworking, owners Megan Sommerville and Matt Ensner have developed an intuitive and responsive visual language which informs their lighting and a growing portfolio of residential and commercial interiors projects.
The Forchette chandelier, composed of twelve lithe brass arms, each supporting a hand cast porcelain or solid brass shade, was inspired by a collaboration with ceramicist Andrew Molleur, as well as the clustered, asymmetrical arrangements of barnacles in nature. Available in graphite or natural porcelain, and five finishes of brass, the Forchette chandelier is organic yet refined.
