Touch Trays are a part of the Touch collection consisting of benches, trays and other objects. Their special quality lies in the handcarved surfaces that engage our instinctive impulse to feel something, and reflect our hunger for more tactile surroundings in the digital age. The trays are hand-made in Bosnia Herzegovina using Zanat’s wood carving skills, current nominee for the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity List. Since the craftsmen carve the trays at random, without drawings – each is unique as no two carved surfaces will ever look the same.
