Brass & Leather Karui Tray
Karui tray, ink blue leather, small. Design GamFratesi
Polished brass & Tärnsjö leather. Ø:14cm
The Karui trays are designed by GamFratesi for Skultuna. The trays are made using metal spinning, a classic Skultuna production technique. The leather comes from the leading Swedish tannery Tärnsjö, famous for their high quality leather and located close to Skultuna in Sweden.
Stine Gam on the design philosophy for the trays: The trays are called Karui / ?? which in Japanese means soft (in relation to the leather part) but also light (the trays have a light aesthetic). Japanese gives other meanings as well, such “easy/easily” “quick perhaps” which is the informal feeling we want with the trays, place and take our personal things on the tray becoming a functional and personal easy everyday gesture.
