Karui trays designed by GamFratesi for Skultuna

10

GamFratesi’s has designed a new collection of trays coined ‘Karui’ for Skultuna that merge traditional materials with time-honoured techniques.  Skultuna manufactured the trays using metal spinning, a classic production process. Each piece is lined with a contrasting leather fabric and available in 3 colours.

“The trays are called ‘Karui’ which in Japanese means soft – in relation to the leather part, but also light,”said Stine Gam.

“Japanese gives other meanings as well, such as “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.”
