Wood, granite and leather. Functional design, handmade with Galician roots
The Crafture Box Winter Edition is almost ready.
We have been working side by side with a team of makers and artists who have designed an exclusive product we are in love with.
What is it?
Well… If we told you it would be no surprise… But we will give you some, let’s see if you guess what is hidden within this box!
First of all, you should know that for this #CraftureBox Winter Edition we are working with Cru e Nu, a craft firm located in the Baixo Miño (Galicia, Spain) which designs and creates furniture and household objects by using noble materials, without ornaments or flourishes, functional, with high-quality finishes and paying close attention to details.
Wood is the base in all their creations (first clue!). They choose wood for its warmth, its smell and its texture.
The essence of the brand is to manufacture the products in raw materials in order to find the bare design.
Behind Cru e Nu, is André Simón. He arrived to this corner of Spain after a long journey tour around large cities such as Madrid, Milan, London, Paris… The experience of studying and working in such amazing places allowed him to meet and collaborate with designers and brands that create a trend nowadays. For André, design is a way of life. It is the result of taking small decisions that require a lot of energy and attention, always focusing on creating a product that fits like a glove inside our homes.
When we first contacted André he was moved by the idea of participating in a project where he could have the freedom to suggest, design and create a functional object exclusively for our subscribers.
A few days later he proposed a project in which he had been working together with two collaborators and it was love at first sight. We fell in love with the mix of noble materials such as beech wood, granite and leather, perfectly combined to create a clean and functional design. You may say that its functioning has something of primitive and we love how it contrasts with the refined and contemporary design.
