ABOUT US

Welcome to Universo Positivo. Discover design democratization through contemporary, multifunctional and European made furniture. Our first collection was presented in September 2013 at Maison&Objet fair in Paris. It was a fresh and dynamic celebration of a surprising mix between solid oak and lacquered metal.

Universo Positivo was initiated by Ethnicraft and the designers duo Jan & Lara. The collection navigates through collaborations with Hertel & Klarhoefer, David Caspar Schäfer, Thomas Merlin and Jonas Wahlström. It takes you to a refined and timeless playful universe. In our Universo Positivo, each piece of furniture, each accessory or lighting was created with a sense of aesthetics, simplicity and a coherent approach of lifestyle.

Enjoy life, enjoy our universe.

DESIGNERS

Jan & Lara met in 2000, and got married soon after that. Jan studied art restoration in North Carolina at the English Guild in Ashville. He had his own interior decorating company, worked for a Canadian interior design company and decorated private homes.

Lara studied fashion, had her own interior decorating and styling company and worked for several theaters as a costume and decor designer. She created catalogues for le Bon Marché and Pioneer. Furthermore she worked as a stylist for several Belgian interior magazines.

In 2004 they travelled together to China and Vietnam, where they developed eco-stone material key and designs, for Handsen&Handsen. This project took five years on setting up production lines, color finishes, material key, designing collections and branding. They are also part of the design cooperative Caravan.

In 2012, they initiated the “UP” project together with Philippe Delaisse, founder of Ethnicraft, with the accent on affordable good quality and European made design. Their inspiration comes from the destiny of everyday life.

SASCHA SARTORY

Motivated by the goal to create long lasting, high quality products for individual living, industrial designer Sascha Sartory develops new product solutions in his design studio in Cologne, Germany. After his studies in product- and industrial design at the University of Applied Science Aachen (Diploma I in 2004) and University Wuppertal (Diploma II in 2007) he worked for different design agencies where he learned how to combine latest technologies, trends and materials to create new and innovative consumer products.

Since 2009 he works as an independent designer as well as he is co-founder and part of the FORMFUSION Produktdesign team, together with industrial designer Sebastian Hoek. Fascinated by surprising details his focus goes towards designing products that provide sustainability by using high quality materials in a smart and durable construction. First and foremost every object should not only solve a problem but also create an emotional bond to its consumer.

After working in Paris for different design studios for four years, Thomas Merlin started his own design studio in 2011. He approaches his project with simplicity and accuracy. He questions the way things are constructed and seeks methods to make them more environmental friendly. The balance between the design and functionality is kept by using natural materials which results in a modern and minimalist look.

Inspired by craftsmen who bring life to the materials, the studio makes his prototypes in collaboration with these craftsmen and companies which results in a fantastic collection. Thanks to all of them: Jean-Paul Bouchet, La Poterie de Cliousclat, Nathalie Groeneweg, Alain Sartre, Metylos, Tôlerie Métal Indus.

KASCHKASCH

The design studio was established by Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider. Kaschkasch always tries to achieve the maximum out of the minimum by breaking every idea down to its essential elements.

The products are casual and voguish at the same time. Precise lines and geometric shapes give them a graphical impression that is underlined by fashioned coloring and straightforwardness. Every piece has a little thing to discover that speaks of the designers’ love for details. kaschkasch´s studio and workshop are located in a charming backyard building in the former working-class district cologne Zollstock (means: folding ruler).

HERTEL & KLARHOEFER

Peter Christian Hertel, born in 1968, and Sebastian Klarhoefer, born in 1966, know each other since school days. They studied Architecture in Berlin and Venice and degreed in 1996 and 1994 at the Berlin Institute of Technology.

They created their first furniture designs during the studies at the Instituto Universitario di Architettura in Venice with Aldo Rossi. In 1999 they founded their design agency Hertel& Klarhoefer.

Since 2001 they are working together as designers and architecs in their own studio in Berlin. In their team there are product designers, interior designers, prototypists and carpenters. In the following years they have created furniture and accessoires for famous brands as Authentics, ClassiCon, Flötotto, Ligne Roset, Nils Holger Moormann and Zeitraum.

They define themselves as creatives that are working on a project starting with conceptual designs and ending up with technical product development. Right from the start they have been fascinated by the pulsating rhythm and creative potential of Berlin. This influences their work up to now.

gud seeks for beauty in the truth of shapes, creating objects that aim to speak through our culture and memories. With great attention to detail, they try to take the best from the materials. gud is about design, objects, spaces and stories – the ‘conspiracy’ for something new and meaningful.

It is a project of the designers Alexandre Kumagai and Paulo Neves, a collective based in Porto – Portugal.

JONAS WAHLSTRöM

Jonas was born in Nyköping, Sweden. After his military service he moved to Stockholm and worked as a chef. In 1998 Jonas moved to the Cayman Islands where he lived and worked for 2 years before ending up as the Sous Chef at a restaurant in Chicago.

In 2001, Jonas joined the Bauhaus Apprenticeship Institute and worked closely with the late Berthold Schwaiger. This is where he obtained his basic knowledge of wood and traditional craftsman techniques. Jonas left the Bauhaus after completing his one year commitment and went on to work for other designers in different mediums to further his knowledge in building and design.

In 2012 Jonas left Chicago and moved his family back to Sweden where they settled on an island in the archipelago just north of Stockholm. “This move has given me a chance to reconnect personally with the Scandinavian design style I feel is the core in my work.”

Until present, Jonas has been continuing to design furniture while also working closely with architects and designers to complete both high end residential, and commercial projects. During this time he has honed his skills in Auto-cad drafting, 3D modeling and rendering.

Presently, Jonas is also designing furniture for a national design/ furniture retailer in the US.

DJORDJE CUKANOVIC

Djordje is a Serbian designer born in 1986. He worked as a professional designer in Rome, Italy where he graduated at Istituto Europeo di Design, in Industrial Design sector. During his career, he successfully participated in many international competitions and exhibitions worldwide. He collaborated with companies such as In-es artdesign, Motulab, Es-Mare, MoodlT, where he developed skills in different fields and materials, such as product design, nautical design, mold production, plastics, composite materials, wood and so on.

He wouldn't define himself as an industrial designer only, considering his strong interests in all the fields that have to do with design in general. His passion is making everyday objects better, using design as a tool, going from the concept through investigation, development, and well-engineered production technology. He considers design as an emotional process and tries to reflect an image of himself through the objects, constantly developing plans for improved versions.
