Materialise Me


Between 2007 and 2008, Petz together with designer Mette Bak Andersen started Materialise Me, handmade for mass production, in order to to focus designers and architects on the importance of the material in the design process.

We like it when the material creates the object. We get excited when the material influences the design process from the beginning. We are psyched by new materials that have been created especially for a new design. We love designers who share their design process with us and don’t just show the finished piece. This is what makes us tick, what makes us designers say ‘wow’! The material is a much too important part to be left until the end of the design process, and some designers got this right. We are working on collecting those examples.

Both Mette and Petz are currently working on projects under the Materialise Me philosophy, but have put the idea of publishing a book on ice for now. Initial research can be seen on the Materialise Me blog.
