What influences are there in your designs?
Our cultural background is rather obvious in our art, merged with western and local cultures. This manifestation is not the outcome of a conscious decision, but the natural development that derives from our background.
What are your sources of inspiration?
We get inspired by daily life, by every single piece of furniture, old or new. We observe technical and aesthetic details with curiosity. The cuts, the joints and the unification of the whole object are details that actually fascinate us!
What is little-known about your work?
The time required for every single detail. Also, when you create a new synthesis, you need to pay attention to function, execution and appearance. Each is a distinct feature of every piece, yet the three should be in absolute coherence.
Could your craft be considered in danger?
Mass production and irresponsible consumption are the main challenges for the survival of craftspeople. Yet, we believe that artisans can raise public awareness. They can also influence culture by doing what they love.
