OLDWAYS | Tools of Tradition

 “OLDWAYS: a little wooden collection” draws on tradition to create pieces that, although described as “basic” and “casual” by the artist, are undeniably modern in their simplicity. 

The cheese grater has a clean geometry that clashes with its rustic origin; made from a tomato can with nail-drilled holes, the object is a symbol of honesty and purity rather than fashion or glamour. The hand-cut wooden utensils also embody the designer's ideal, their forms so graphic that they more closely resemble sketches than reality. Continuing to follow the “old ways” of making in his instinctively shaped cutting boards and imperfect rolling pins, each piece in the collection carries the designer's unique artisanal touch and pays homage to his cultural heritage.
