Carmworks is a handmade design studio based in Colombia, crafting objects that can encourage individuals to appreciate three simple universal realities: nothing lasts, nothing is complete and nothing is perfect.
From the self-aware treatment of the wood; looking to connect a narrative between people and the objects, by highlighting the process and the innate features of the material, a story that can be traced on all the information the piece embodies.
It uses an established language made by nature: the mountains, the waterfalls, the trees, the mist; each of these emerges in a language that is embraced as the soul of the pieces. The wood is considered to be a living source for transformation.
In a reality distorted by the digitization of the sensory experience, here exists the opportunity for new multi-sensory manifestations with the capacity to transcend the age of the internet by encouraging the appreciation of the process of nature and creation.
CarmWorks embraces heritage; by the respectful adoption of Colombian crafts, not to merely be a technique to be borrowed, but also a recognition of how our ancestors interpreted the universe, featured in the cosmology of our fabrics.
We are committed to creating elaborate, relevant pieces; establishing a dialogue within the awareness of ephemerality. As previously stated, we believe that nothing lasts, nothing is complete and nothing is perfect.
CarmWorks creates handmade woodworking furniture influenced by the observation in nature and the constant change of things throughout the time, with the capacity to inspire three simple realities: nothing last, nothing is completed and nothing is perfect.
