Bjørne was born out of Leonardo Perina’s imagination in 2018, as an independent design and workshop studio based in Trento, Italy. Focusing on ethical wood craftsmanship, Bjørne realized hundreds of entirely handcrafted and environmentally friendly objects since then.
Our production materials are locally sourced, and the majority of the wood involved is a leftover of the many trees cut down by the Vaia flood, which affected northern Italy in late 2018.
In contrast to the modern user’s tendency to be surrounded by advanced technologies and to demand high-speed results, we look backward to the slower, primary process of manual work and to the use of natural components.
Bjørne's formula is simple: bond old methods with new needs and you will add real value to contemporary living.
