Submaterial produces thoughtful and precisely hand-crafted design accessories for modern interior environments. From the smallest residential panel to the largest commercial installation, our designs are pared down to essential elements of material, pattern and function. In their simplicity and beauty these works explore the territory between objects of art and objects of design.

At our New Mexico-based studio natural and sustainable materials such as wool felt, cork and leather are fashioned by hand into beautifully surfaced wallcoverings and panels. The designs are made-to-order and have an underlying modularity which allows for both creative flexibility and a straightforward installation. As both the designer and the manufacturer, Submaterial can easily customize any of our products, changing color or scale to suit the intended environment.

Since the studio launched in 2006 Submaterial has been focused on creating unique wallcoverings, acoustic surfaces, screens and décor panels for architects and interior designers. Along the way, our products have collected quite a following across the full range of the design industry and a few notable awards. We’re grateful to have been featured in so many excellent design publications such as Elle Decor, Metropolis, Architectural Record, Interior Design, Azure and The New York Times.
