THE DESIGNER & THE STUDIO
A few words about me and my studio!
I'm Catarina Calçada - the founder and designer behind Nordenstudio. My professional background lies in Product and Graphic Design and I am always looking for a type of natural and unsophisticated beauty in my designs. My inspirations are people and their cultures, quality of materials, architecture and the raw simplicity of geometry and color.
I love to work with people who commit to the project as much as I do, so all the designs start with a hot beverage, a nice conversation and a blank sheet of paper.
Nordenstudio was established in 2012 as an experimental studio for leather goods, where form and function always played a big part. The result of this profound marriage between form and function are lightweight yet durable pieces intended to give its owner a sense of pleasure and satisfaction each time they use it.
Focusing on exceptional materials, impeccable details and precise cuts, the studio combines a timeless perspective with subtle attitudes which forms an irreverent classic signature. The designs also explore the strength of simplistic shapes that speak to discretion and are based on uncompromising quality. No intrusive logos, just quality products designed to last and to be treasured across generations.
