Matter Makers likes to think about what is possible in the near future and develop dreams and visions for clients. We design spaces and objects that are unique and seamlessly blend in the environment, while taking care of our planet. 

We develop concepts for space and program.

As a studio for architecture and design working from San Francisco and Amsterdam on projects worldwide, we work in a multidisciplinary environment among developers, architects, urban planners, landscape planners, entrepreneurs, designers and makers. We embrace beauty and tactility and try to lay multiple layers of use in each design. With an extensive knowledge in materials and innovation we are the go-to for everyone who wants to make something special and unique on the scale from a perfume bottle to a city block. For each scale and project we use specific tools to develop ideas and concepts into physical objects and spaces.
