Origin curates a line of contemporary objects by bringing designers and artisans together.

Once a year Origin invites designers to Portugal to work with local craftsmen and visit ateliers in different towns, sharing a house and meals together. Most of Origin products are completely handmade.

Origin publish the names of their makers, not just the names of designers, because they 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.

Origin goal is to foster a deeper sense of closeness between the owner of our object, and the people who made it.
