The hammer hanged above the K in our logo, represents the value of work and creation. It is one of the first working tools. It also symbolizes an active attitude of the designer that brings cultural issues into the daily talk, we manufacture most of our products in-house in our studio and we develop them through a process that begins with a practical research with the materials.
Design, for us, is a field that lay on the border of art. We don’t believe that all of the products should be designed in purpose to make our life easier or more comfortable. We want our design to surround its users with stories and emotions, hope and fantasies, questions and ferry tales. We believe that good design must reveal cultural issues and ask questions about our way of living. »

Breaking is an experience of impulsive outburst, but this time is an act that builds rather than destroys.
In a world of products whose shape is completely dictated by the designer, the FRAGILE Necklace enables the user to complete the design themselves. The act of breaking leaves its mark on the design giving it its final, unique, one-of-a-kind appearance. «
