Material Alchemy

"The value of an object is determined by its connection with the material, the process used to create it and its concept." - Simone Leonelli.


The manufacturing workflow has long been stuck in the old production methods of centuries past. Nowadays, technology is driving what is possible in design in unlimited ways. And the tremendous changes in technology are bringing new opportunities to craftsmen. If there's a new way to design or make a product, we want to take advantage of it.
