Gymnasium cabinets

, , , , , , By Catherine Lazure | Nordic Design

These cabinets are designed by Soren Rose for Mater and are part of the limited edition Gymnasium. We especially like the ‘Old edition’, with is made from recycled gym floorboards!

“Remember the hardwood? The squeak of a sneaker. The sound of the whistle. That last second shot. The Gymnasium collection takes its inspiration from a simpler time in our lives when victories were measured on scoreboards and teamwork wasn’t just for meetings.” –

Designer Soren Rose focuses on quality and crafstmandship, and he “has a global outlook of the things that will live past our time.” ach piece is crafted by Danmark’s oldest cabinet makers Bruno Hansen carpenty. Mater’s cabinets are made of sustainable, eco-friendly matierals like renewable pine and a Danish oak. Moreover, Mater donates a percentage of the profits to promoting sports in developing countries. The company also has an interesting ‘Code of conduct‘.
