ORIGIN-MADE DESIGN WORKSHOP
Hong Kong, China - SET DESIGN + STYLING
Origin curates 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. Most of our products are completely handmade, and our photographs are shot on analog film.
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.
