Universo Positivo is a fascinating design company that was originally launched by the designed behind Ethnicraft and the design duo Jan and Lara. The partnership has teamed up in many collaborations with different designers to create their Universo Positivo collections and the company launched its first ever collection in September 2013 and presented it at Maison & Objet Fair in Paris. That first collection was a celebration of how well beautiful solid oak and lacquered metal work together and many of their products continue to explore interesting material combinations.
Universo Positivo is a Belgian brand that, in their own words, is committed to offers ‘masterfully crafted designs’ and their range brings together both design and engineering to ensure each product is precisely designed to offer exceptional style and design, as well as being functional. As a young design brand the team behind Universo Positivo describe themselves as a ‘slightly vanguard collective of designers’ in some ways but they also consider themselves more than this as they are strongly committed and dedicated to good product design, quality sustainability and the endurance of their collections.
Universo Positivo has collaborated with many designers in the short time since its launch, with key partners including renowned designers such as David Caspar Schäfer, Thomas Merlin, Jonas Wahlström and Hertel & Klarhoefer.
Many of the pieces in the Universo Positivo range are designed specifically with more than a single function in mind and they have a focus on the newest and most contemporary design ideas and trends. All their furniture is made right here in Europe and they want to inject a sense of aesthetics into the most functional pieces of furniture and design, with a coherent approach to the modern lifestyle and way of living.
The Universo Positivo collection covers many different pieces for different spaces in the home. They offer stylish seating and table options, desks and coffee tables, storage solutions with a truly innovative style ingrained in their design and as mentioned, their commitment to coherence means many of their products work harmoniously together and can form the base of the design for a whole room. Their range also includes stylish yet essential accessories such at coat hooks and shelving units which can make an empty space feel more complete thanks to the innovative nature of the design and how it manages to bring simple materials together in a cohesive and effective way.
Universo Positivo also have a lighting collection, with many examples of what they have to offer in the Naken Interiors range from the designer. Their lights are often surprising and once again in their own words, they aim to create pieces which take you to a ‘refined and timeless playful universe’ and alongside this they are still right in the heart of the contemporary design scene.
