Turned from solid Portuguese chestnut, the Chubri cup designed by Porto based Hugo Passos is a study of form, proportion and details. The edge of the cup tapers and forms a fine lip and its bottom is gently rounded. Its size is perfectly suited to fit in the cusp of one's palm. The cup is finished with food-safe mineral oil.
Designed by Hugo Passos, made by Adão Gomes in Paços de Ferreira, Portugal.
Material: Turned chestnut wood
Size 79x68x69 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.
