O2 WOOD is a small woodworking studio, offering beautifully shaped handmade objects, ranging from household items to unique wooden jewelry. Characteristic of the O2 products is the finding of a fresh conceptual approach to every idea, playing and experimenting with materials, and also knowing the functional and technological aspects of production.
Nature teaches us to accept the imperfections and the transiency of all things. Nothing is forever and our time is short, so we shouldn’t waste it on anything superfluous. O2 objects try to follow this philosophy. When we succeed in perfectly matching the shape to the function, then we know that we have in our hands a thing of beauty.
My name is Metka Zver. I’m a Slovenian designer-maker, crafting wood and I own a small business named O2 wood. I’m one of those handcrafters, that at 40 and something decided to walk out of their regular job, leave behind the corporate world and instead follow their dreams. My particular dream was creating beautiful objects with my own hands. The material of my choice is wood. The technique that I’m more and more obsessed with: woodturning.
