Introducing Opus Lab...
Opus Lab is Ramos Pires, a Sydney based designer passionate about woodworking and the simplicity of Scandinavian design and Japanese aesthetics. Self taught and habouring a natural talent, he is drawn to working by hand to carve and create his designs, his interest and skill in woodworking has been well earned over time and with determination.
Dedicated to making homewares that are both useful and beautiful, Pires' work has a restrained elegance, with fine finishes and considered details. The brass will patina over time and contain the history of its use and its owners hands, creating a continuum from the maker's hands to yours. The proportions feel good in your hands, the wood full of character and warmth.
Pires says "The design philosophy of Opus Lab is to bring attention to their handmade origin, resulting in beautiful handmade wares that yearn to be proudly displayed."
With the goal of surrounding ourselves with beautiful, thoughtful tools, Opus Lab succeeds with quiet grace in being a household favourite of ours.
