How did yourself and Marta meet and start this journey?
We met in cadaques one summer when I was 18 and then when I was 26 and Marta 24 we met again in Bali. By this point I’d already been in Bali for 2 years and invited her on the journey of a crazy French guy.
How did you go about growing your network of ethical suppliers and artisans?
Basically, I always had a passion for the unique talents that make people special, from art to crafts. You have to be true to yourself to create in this way and that’s really special.
So, for this reason, I travelled around and met local artisans in Indonesia from Sumatra to Java, and of course Bali.
What are your top picks from the new collection?
Probably the Stella lounge chair as she embodies the original H&W style. Geometric and simple construction combined with an organic shape and a natural raw material; loom.
I also love the Marta Lounge Chair which comes in three leg shape. I can see and imagine this chair as a classic 60s piece, but I also see it as a new and modern design, made to last for years to come. We wanted to create a collection where pieces weren’t seen as temporary and could still be seen in any kind of interior in the future.
Finally the Aurelia Marble Stool because it’s our first marble collection. The round shape Marta created seems very simple and organic and its creamy texture brings serenity and peace. I also find it cool how it’s made from one solid block of marble.
