The Home Project

Design Begins at Home
Posted by Lucas—01/2013

Albio Nascimento and Kathi Stertzig are initiators of an unusual design studio: The Home Project. Based between Berlin and Faro, Portugal, the studio is dedicated to making objects informed by vernacular cultural research and originating from the relationship of people to their places. The Home Project’s exquisitely simple glassware, basketry, and ceramics are made by local artisans and craftsmen in the southern Algarve and Alentejo regions. Shot in Portugal and in Berlin, Gestalten.tv introduces you to a perfect example of responsible design innovation.
