We are Katharina Brand and Tzuri Gottlieb, we both share a love of nature in its simplicity and in its fascination, most of our products are made of natural materials. Studio Vayehi tells a personal tale, that emphasizes the human dimension in the production process. The studio specializes in the design and production of hand-crafted light objects made of wood veneer (thin slices of fine wood). Our hands caress, wrap and bend, they trace the tendencies of the material, and gather the thin layers of wood to form a shade. The finished object retains the memories of our movements. We prefer to "sketch" with the material itself, with no intermediate such as paper and pen or a computer. So ideas are born off the material, simple movements create shapes that open possibilities.
