In love with an eternal craft

  • • Lyubomir prefers using traditional woodworking techniques
  • • His biggest challenge is to create something that's never been done before
  • • He describes himself as a full-blooded artisan

The sudden need for a comfortable, durable and attractive kids dining chair led Lyubomir Stoev (or Lubo, as he is known) to create one himself when his son turned six months old. This was the first piece of furniture he made by himself and also marked the beginning of Ourhood, the studio he launched together with his wife Yana. Despite his educational background in electronics and marketing, Lubo's childhood hobby was making various creations in his grandfather’s workshop. There he learnt how to work with tools and to craft independently, even making his own bow and arrows. Еventually this would turn out to be the place where he would create his first wooden products.
