Over the past 10 years Croatia has become one of Australian’s favourite European holiday destinations. We love the colourful and sunny country with all it’s beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, Balkan food as well as direct and good humoured people. It simply makes a perfect affordable holiday destination of pure indulgence. In fact – let’s speak it out loud- we love it because it reminds us of home but is so very different.

So now there is a young and award winning design and manufacturing company called Prostoria that brings mediterranean sensuality paired with continental rationality directly from Zagreb into Australian homes and offices. The sustainable and adaptable materials perfectly suit our warm climate and the detail focused manufacturing guarantees a long term customer experience with the fun, young and most of all clever designs.

Prostoria was originally founded in 2010 near Zagreb, Croatia under name of “Kvadra” by Tomislav Knezovi. From the start Tomislav worked closely with several collectives of young designers to create unique and well thought through contemporary couches and chairs. Austrian-Croatian design collective NUMEN/FORUSE already design on an international level, whereas Ivana Borovnjak & Roberta Bratovi, the trio Grupa, Sanja Knezovic and design studio Redesign are the newcomers that create Prostoria’s fresh ideas.

Kvadra

One thing that has been missing from our range over the years has been a sofa collection. A collection that meets our design requirements. There are so many sofa designs that are… well just rectangular. Boxes.

This changed at the beginning of the year when we met the people from Kvadra. At first it was their designs that stuck my attention, in particular the Segment. However, as we got to know each other it became clear that our philosophies also align. Kvadra is a young company formed in 2010. Much younger than it’s design in terms of existence. Yet our people are a similar age. Kvadra, like it’s design, lays value on the craftsman techniques and quality workmanship, combined with modern machinery and processes. A focus on comfort with the understanding that the desire for aesthetic is part of human need. Being a young dynamic group of people exchanging ideas, curious about new materials, exploring new ways and designs. There are so many parallels between us this was obviously a perfect partnership. Explore their collection and follow us on FacebookLinkedInPinterest, Twitter and Google+ as we add new models to the range.
