After coming back from the first poetic journey, I decided to ask my creative partner in crime Klas Dalquist to join this project.
We didn't really know where to begin ... as we didn't want to be just "cork designers".
Our aim was to shape a philosophy starting from the values we experienced during our journey in Alentejo.
Simplicity, timeless, respect, heritage, craftsmanship , patina , Mother Earth were the first words on our blank page.
We decided to call our first project "BIRTH".
Not about a collection of objects ... but a printed journal as a visual manifesto to share the poetry of the cork harvest, the source of our inspiration...
