The limited edition pieces are designed and crafted personally in our studio, creating a very intimate bond between designer and object.
These signature designs are handcrafted from scrap materials -Material as treasure-, or from objects found by chance -Object as treasure-.
They will never be exactly the same, and in many cases, imperfection will be part of their history.
