raawii creates design with attitude.Versatile and always powerful, significant and refined at the same time.
raawii was established in 2017 by Bo Raahauge and Nicholai Wiig-Hansen. The two founders describe the company as a dynamic life design. They share the great passion for creating and seeing the created growth in a working life and a life work, where they navigate to three central goals: products with strong proportions, production with respect for people, the environment and society, and space and scope for designers.
With inspiration from early 20th-century cubism, Nicholai Wiig-Hansen shapes his contributions to the raawii universe through experimental sketching and modelling techniques. The outcome is a refined simplicity of geometric shapes and colours translated into functional everyday objects.
Nazaré Beach is part of one of the most traditional fishing Portuguese villages where women with the traje de sete saias taking care of the fish can still be seen. It’s known worldwide, especially by big wave surfers of different nationalities due to its sea conditions. During the summer, there is still a big affluence of surfers and bodyboarders, although it is mainly a family beach offering excellent lifeguard and different mobility conditions.
