Designed by Nuno Grade, made by Carlos Barbosa in Paços de Ferreira, Portugal.
These wooden trays inAmerican Walnut are all about joinery details. The design carries a Portuguese signature but also Scandinavian and Japanese influence. Ponte means bridge in Portuguese and it is a set of trays that can support, highlight and transport everything one loves, moving the flavours over short distances. The smallest tray is ideal for small bites or a cup of tea, with the medium sized tray one can have his or her meal at their favorite place. The largest tray takes the table wherever one wishes.
Small 350x190x40 mm
Medium 480x260x40 mm
Large 630x350x40 mm
Origin curates and produces a line of contemporary objects by bringing designers and artisans together. We invite our designers to Portugal once a year to work with local craftsmen and visit ateliers in different towns, sharing a house and meals together. All of our objects are completely or partially handmade. We work with both individual craftsmen as well as small factories to realize our designs in numbered editions.
We publish the names of our makers, not just the names of designers, because we want to do things differently, to remind ourselves that each Origin product is made by a person who could be a father, a mother, a grandfather or a daughter... something we tend to forget in our consumption-driven culture. Our goal is to foster a deeper sense of closeness between the owner of our object, and the people who made it.
Delivery time: Between 1 - 4 weeks, depending on stock and availability.
