Matter-Made founder and Creative Director, Jamie Gray says: “To create my own line seemed like a natural progression for me. My approach to design is very similar to the way I approach curating or editing – it’s an intuitive process. My taste remains quite classic in terms of materiality, but I like looking at materials through the lens of technology and seeing how a simple idea can be rendered using what’s available today.”
