Matabase allows designers to integrate the choice of materials
at the very heart of the design process in order to improve
the efficiency, visibility and environmental footprint
of their creations.
Matabase has identified three sectors where
various materials are used.
The selection is then mostly made
regarding environmental criteria :
Renewable and organic materials
for the building industry and interior design
Innovative materials for industry
and design (products, furniture, packaging...)
Innovative fabrics for fashion and
There are many applications, ranging from weatherboarding
to wall panels. For indoor and outdoor use.
Matabase offers a wide array of eco friendly (renewable resources),
health and safety compliant (no volatile compounds) and durable products.
Many materials that make it possible to build responsibly
are constantly being developed in Europe.
Matabase promotes eco manufacturing but offers more
than eco friendly materials. Indeed, eco design means
taking into consideration the whole life cycle of a product.
The fashion industry must constantly improve in terms of function,
manufacturing processes and materials in order to tackle the over consumption
and product obsolescence issues it has to face.
Matabase will therefore offer a selection of innovative fabrics
and natural materials in tune with the industry's requirements
and capable of improving its ecologic performance.
