Country of Origin: Croatia
‘-Love, Ana’ is a small product design studio and store passionate about contributing to the local economy by having its designer products made exclusively by local craftsmen and only from materials available in our country. Products that we offer are designed by Ana Tevsic Naukovic with great care and meticulous attention to detail and, most importantly, love. They are handmade and appear in small series. Our design draws on Scandinavian and Nordic influences, focusing primarily on the functionality of the product and leaving its form clean and simple. Our wood has no other finishing but a coat of natural linseed oil. This not only makes the products eco-friendly but it also promotes a deeper level of interaction between an item and its user. As the users care for their items by giving them an occasional coating of oil they develop a more meaningful relationship with them.
Our work has been recognized internationally as much as in our native country. Several products were listed as Best Buy and Best New Products by magazines such as Elle Decoration, IDFX or Damn. The Traveller lamp received the 2015 AZ People's Choice Award for design excellence. Our studio was the Bronze winner at the 2013 International Design Awards in the Professional / Office Category for Interior Design. The concept of the studio is to provide a place where you can learn more about the products we sell, but more importantly talk to the designer, work or just hang out. Its all-white interior and window change on a weekly basis making it more of a gallery than a shop as we search for new and fresh ways to communicate our products but also different moods and atmospheres.
