MEET FARID WHO SHARES THE SAME VISION AS INUIKII
My professional career began when I started an apprenticeship to become an electrical engineer. After successfully completing this training, I slowly started dreaming of pursuing a career in an area in which I could make the most of my creative and communicative abilities – I decided to move in a new direction. After giving it a great deal of thought, I decided to make the jump to the communications industry. I studied in Zurich to become a Communications Planner. The industry knowledge that I gained during all this time, and especially the awareness of how difficult it is, in the age of mass-production and cheap manufacturing, to find handmade, sustainable designer furniture that meets the unique needs of individual customers, led me to the idea of creating upcycled designer furniture. I combined my ability to work with my hands with the experiences that I acquired during my time as a communications consultant, and created a sample piece out of old wine crates.
Slowly but surely, the work in my garage began to replace my evenings spent in front of the television, and I switched my smartphone for sandpaper. Friends and acquaintances began hearing about my work and started asking me to make pieces for them, which led me to expand my production. As a result, the orders and the upcycled furniture made of wine crates and cable drums became more unique and imaginative, which then led to more interest from the people around me. UNIQAMO began to take shape … The main pillars of UNIQAMO’s philosophy are unique design, careful hand craftsmanship and passion.
UNIQAMO is made in Switzerland and uses recycled materials as the basis for its designs: wine crates and cable drums are upcycled to create designer furniture that is always “unique & handmade for you”.www.uniqamo.com
In the age of mass production, every piece of furniture is one of a kind no matter if it's a INUIKII shoe or furniture. Quality is defined by its creators visions.
