Materiality of ATRA
In ATRA’s design laboratory, furniture design, architectural services, and art production all take place side-by-side under one roof, and everything is fabricated on site. Traditional woodworking, stoneworking, and upholstery coexist with experimental architectural practices, materials research, and metallurgy — and hand-tooling is given a modern update with computerized production and robotic fabrication.
From designers and architects to master carpenters and textile artisans, technique comes first for ATRA creators. Craft and precision are brought to every project, and each piece that leaves the studio’s doors is hand-finished.
ATRA uses the highest quality materials in all of its products, stones, metals, woods and plaster - finishing each item by hand.
