We are a new design brand with a drive to create furniture with emphasis on design and fine woodworking.
Every piece that comes out from our shop has been meticulously designed to speak of the modern and fresh lifestyle of the 21st century without loosing the warm and traditional touch of a hand made wood furniture piece.
We spend a great amount of time developing a coherent collection that reflects the aesthetic style of SinCa but each piece is fabricated upon request giving it the possibilities of personalizing for each client.
Besides offering the variety of the Collection, SinCa practice offers site-specific design solutions in close collaboration with architects and users, from the starting idea until its final materialization.
The SinCa wood shop and design studio is located in Tolland CT within a historic 1850 farm-house. The synergy between the past and present elements of the space is a direct link to how SinCa defines its main interest within the creative field as a dialogue between two opposite poles; classical and contemporary approach.
