The manufacturing method of Uni Ouriço is manual, which makes each piece unique. There is no equal pieces. Wood is the basic element: a warm material that guarantees the complete transition from the sea to the land, keeping the pieces as natural and as alive as possible. The teak oil layer, applied in the final stage of the manufacturing process, provides a natural wood smell, enhances the beauty of the object and brings it as close as possible to the living being.
Paulo Reis creates Uni Ouriço. Passionate about the sea and nature, he was lucky to be born and raised with the sea at his doorstep, in Ericeira – where the countryside and rural landscapes meet the steep cliffs, seasoned with the salt of the cold and often violent Atlantic.
