Ribrand is a contemporary brand of wooden products which reflects a collaboration between our design studio and Ribnica Handicraft Centre—a Public Institute, whose mission is continuous care for the overall preservation and development of cultural heritage and its integration with modern areas of creation.
The cottage industries that the Valley of Ribnica is best known for are woodenware making and pottery, which boast a tradition of several hundred years. The making of »Ribnica Woodenware« is one of the oldest and at the same time a very unique cottage industry. Ribrand stands as an ambassador for its heritage, yet confidently opens new paths for sustainable products.
Our involvement in the project exceeded our fundamental role as product and identity designers—we also became storytellers and photographers.
Wood for Food
We designed nine products for Ribrand’s first collection called Wood for Food. Set of kitchen utensils for a perfectly prepared dish, salt and pepper shakers to spice up your life, hexagon platters which can be combined like puzzle pieces, and much more!
