About us

Unrefined Basel designs and creates interior furniture and items for clients and businesses worldwide.

Who We Are

We are a duo of brothers who despite 1000 km distance between each other embarked upon a journey to create and run niche design label with focus on concrete, mouth blown glass and steel. Our design studio and office is located in a beautiful village called Ettingen in Switzerland, just a sort drive from Basel. We are inspired by natural motifs and modern architectural design to create unique products that are truly breathtaking.

The idea for Unrefined was borne in 2014. We were invited by a close friend to assist him with creating his own traditional mouth blown glass lighting collection. His love for the physical connection of his work got us thinking. Step-by-step, we decided to jump full force into the world of concrete, mouth blown glass and steel.

Eventually, in 2015, we decided to launch our own design and manufacturing company called “Unrefined Basel”.
