As a family standing behind Mitja, we have cultivated a strong sense of permanence in the craft of woodworking, which has been handed down through three generations in Carpentry Bolcic. Although we cherish our traditional expertise, we are an innovative company with a contemporary mindset. Every decision made is not only imbued with common sense, but also a sensibility for the materials, artisans, designers, products and nature.
We create furniture with the firm belief that quality of life also depends on the character of the objects we surround ourselves with. As the world’s fabric becomes more digital, people strive for a greater material experience. We embrace it too, as Slovenian identity goes hand in hand with nature.
In 1924, Poul Henningsen created his influential Paris lamp for Louis Poulsen, and the origin of how we still design to shape light can directly be traced back to his views on the dualities of design and light.
Founded in 1874, Louis Poulsen is a Danish lighting manufacturer born out of the Scandinavian design tradition where form follows function. The function and design of our products are tailored to reflect and support the rhythm of natural light. Every detail in the design has a purpose. Every design starts and ends with light.
