Melanie Abrantes is a young designer and woodworker who founded her own brand in 2013. Working with a variety of unique materials, Melanie strives to create products of the highest quality that are equally beautiful and functional.
Her passion for woodworking originates from the simple fact that every piece is unique as the material it is made from. Through the technique of lathing, she turns simple pieces of solid wood and cork into one-of-a-kind pieces.
Melanie only uses local wood and cork from sustainably managed forests from Portugal.
