Mad Lab

The word “artisan” gets bandied about a lot these days. Everything from chocolate and beer to toilet plungers (google it) gets the tag, which is being watered-down to the point of redundancy. Luckily there are people like Mad Lab out there who are upholding what artisanship is all about: skilful craftspeople making high-quality products.

The Madrid-based studio draws from a well of talented individuals, who expertly craft unique and nuanced pieces. More than simply decorative, each object tells a little story about the artist who made it. We bought Opening Original, as set of four little sculptures made from beech wood, as playful as they are endearing.
