Superfolk makes simple, poetic, tactile objects for affordable and everyday use. Established by Gearóid Muldowney in 2008, this independent design studio’s heart lies in the craft of production, both handmade and industrial. Referencing a way of life rooted in the patterns and rhythms of a place, its animals and its weather, Superfolk aims for the sensitivity and sustainability of the vernacular approach. The studio is focused on working with locally sourced sustainable materials and innovating in its approach to natural resources such as wool, wood and leather. For Vernacular, Superfolk are showcasing their new range of simple and functional vessels.
