Matter Of Stuff founders and exhibition curators Simona Auteri and Sofia Steffenoni comment: “The Matter of Stuff philosophy is about shedding light on the intellectual and practical applications through which precious objects are realised. We want to stimulate interest in processes and in ideas and we hope
this exhibition will act as a catalyst for a shift in how a finished product is thought about.”

Matter of Stuff

Matter of Stuff is an architecture studio and an online design gallery-shop.

MOS is founded by architects and curators Simona Auteri and Sofia Steffenoni, who realise the importance of the people behind the products they represent and the enormous amount of time, knowledge and expertise that is spent developing a finished product by artists, designers and fabricators.
Their aim is to develop a community of designers and manufacturers with a culture where craftsmanship is at the heart of any creation, be it a space or a product.

The name Matter of Stuff reflects the company’s passion for materiality and the importance of prime materials as the base of everyday objects. As well as an e-commerce site, the MOS website is an informative platform where customers and design lovers are able to get insight into the creating process behind the objects on sale. Matter of Stuff’s range of products combine cutting­ edge techniques with traditional craftsmanship and creativity.

Founders Simona Auteri and Sofia Steffenoni comment: 
‘We select designers and manufacturers on the base of their talent and know­how with the vision of creating a community where new collaborations are made possible.
 We are so used to having fast accessibility to so many products that we hardly stop and think about how that particular object was made, assuming it just came out of a box. 
Matter of Stuff challenge that assumption, and want to unveil the story and process of making behind each product we sell.”

Matter of Stuff takes on a selection of architecture and interior design projects, offering its clients a fully comprehensive consultation, from architecture to interior design and furnishing services.
 MOS caters to the very highest level of excellence, tailoring exclusive concepts to the client’s personal vision and requirement.

Founders Simona Auteri and Sofia Steffenoni are UK registered architects.
