raawii was established in 2017 by innovative founders Bo Raahauge Rasmussen and Nicholai Wiig-Hansen. The brand name derives from the first initials of the creators surnames ‘raa’ and ‘wii’ to form raawii. Their design philosophy is to challenge the status quo of design through curiosity and aim to turn creative ideas into enduring objects with a functional purpose. raawii’s focus is to ensure each piece provides a positive impact to the consumer whilst being mindful of the environment, which they thoughtfully refer to as ‘’modernism with heart’’. With intricate craftsmanship and products designed to be handed down from generation to generation, raawii ceramics have a conscious production and distribution lifecycle.
raawii handmade ceramics and homeware capture the essence of Copenhagen and evoke positive emotion and joy amongst their surroundings. raawii’s art inspired collection of functional homewares such as ceramic vases, jugs and bowls embody sculptural qualities and a bold use of colour to make a statement in any environment.
How are raawii’s handmade ceramics created?
"raawii ceramics are hand made in 12 production steps. The production process is an intricate one – from selecting the clay, to casting and to drying it. It not only requires time, but also considerable know-how, craftsmanship and precise skills. This unique manufacturing leads to slight variations in the surface, finishing but also the weight of the final products. This is what makes each item in a subtle – and oftentimes barely visible way - unique."
What is the raawii strøm collection?
The Strøm collection was the brainchild of co-founder Nicholai Wiig-Hansen, Strøm consists of ceramic everyday objects, from functional bowls to decorative vases. Inspired by the early 20th century art movement of Cubism, the raawii Strøm collection utimately consists of a refined selection of ceramics incorporating geometric shapes and colours to bring life into your home.
