Andrea Brugi is a carpenter and wood artist living and working with his Danish wife Samina Langholz in Tuscany. Together, the couple make beautiful and unique pieces by hand - each signed and sold worldwide. Andrea says of his work: 'I only do what the wood tells me to do. I never force a design on the wood. It is the wood that decides the shapes and the design, I just listen to it. Working with wood is so inspiring and each piece has to be treated with respect.'
