What

We started in 2012 with cutting boards and tables, now our production has expanded with furnishing accessories and small decorative items. We aim to draw simple and recognizable lines, which take form in solid and durable objects, with a familiar look. We prefer objects that have to do with conviviality, the table, the kitchen. We produce customized tables and small series of cutting boards. The hole, which was previously only on cutting boards handles, has become our signature. We especially work with wood, but we are starting with an old passion, ceramics.

How

We work with manual tools and with iper tested assembly and fitting techniques, invented centuries ago to make each object last as long as possible. Even if we have a limited production, we pay close attention to the environment. Wood is the sustainable material par excellence, but this does not mean that it can be wasted! Sustainability for us means buying timber only from certified sources, using each small cut out, but above all producing objects that can accompany us throughout our lives. Simple lines, durable materials and traditional techniques allow our objects to overcome fashions and to acquire charm over time.

Where

Our workshop is equipped with everything needed to produce our objects, from the largest table to the smallest keyring. We are in the city center, a stone's throw from the sea. On one side the shop, on the other the carpentry. In between a small ceramic workshop. We like to surround ourselves with inspiring objects, old tools, design pieces, chairs, rolling pins, hangers, planes: they all characterize our space of daily life and work. You’ll find also danish design, lithuanian pottery, japanese wooden animals… just come and visit us
