About us

Material Times wants to inform readers about new trends and ideas, featuring new possibilities and procedures as well as opinions of remarkable people and various initiatives. It aims to seek traditions, inspire innovations and reflect on their implications for our society or the environment. Focus of the magazine derives from the desire to connect the creative world of architecture, art, crafts and design with the one of technology, new materials and science.

  • Material Times is the first Czech magazine about materials and related topics. It is published by the company Happy Materials Ltd. as both formally and substantively independent activity. The company Happy Materials is operated by Lucie Havlová and Tomáš Hendrych. In 2011, the pair’s longstanding interest in production materials led to the founding of the matériO Prague materials library, thanks to the support of an EU grant. In 2013, the library began to publish the Material Times magazine.
  • All articles are available for free on our website, some of them in English as well. 
  • Tereza Anderlová (editor in chief), Lucie Havlová (publisher, journalist), Tomáš Hendrych (publisher, photographer), Dominik Jůn (translator)
