Our vision

Immaterial believes in a not-so-distant future in which porous materials are used ubiquitously, implemented to solve some of the world’s most challenging problems. From developing more efficient ways of using renewable energy sources like hydrogen on our own planet, to providing solutions to create habitable environments on other planets. We are experts in the porous materials at the forefront of this important phase of scientific endeavour.

Our values

What makes us tick

Be humble.

Collaboration is at our core. We have an “all hands on deck” attitude to any task we face, operating with a flat structure in which great ideas can come from anywhere. We don’t rely on personal status, elevation or past success to get us through, and no job is beneath us. We feel secure in surrounding ourselves with exceptional talent, raising the performance bar with every hire and promotion.

Embrace action.

Be bold and move fast. We are not afraid to try new things and fail – failure is an opportunity to learn and improve. We live at the cutting edge of technology, where failure is inevitable and embraced. We do not become afraid to take action though paralysis caused by a fear of making wrong decisions or needing to reverse courses of action.


Our neutral stance is that nothing is impossible until proven otherwise. Every problem and task is tackled by asking ourselves not if we can do it, but how we can do it. We leave our pre-conceptions aside, not letting bias dictate our decisions and actions. We are driven to achieve extraordinary things, and we have an immovable conviction that we will get there.

Be relentless.

We have relentlessly high standards – both in our delivery of services and products, and in how we behave and interact. We are never satisfied with simply being great, because great is far from perfect. We are proactive about moving outside our comfort zones, constantly seeking to learn and understand new perspectives to grow both personally and as a unit.
