Nature is like a colourful album of images that gives us a beautiful scene month after month. No matter where we live, in the countryside or in the city, every season has its own beauty, colours and treasures.
And if we place them on a station table, in that corner of the house where we can follow the cycle of the year?
It will be like bringing a slice of the outside world into our home, filling it with colours and other natural elements that we can treasure.
This material will allow you to experience and appreciate the many ways in which the nature of your environment evolves and changes.
That’s why each set in the series Seasons evokes a season and its elements are impregnated with the colors of the cycle of life.
It contains: 3 Nins, 3 Nins with top, 3 mates, 9 rings, 9 coins.

Grapat is a small family project that materialized from leaving the city to live in a natural environment. However, the idea began to grow within us many years ago, during the first 3 years of our eldest daughter.

We do not interrupt, we take care of space, we keep silent …
It inspires us daily to see how the need to play, almost more than to eat (in our case), leads them to play with a stone in a horrible field in the midday sun in summer. The game in children is like an earthquake that can not be stopped, however much we adults try with all our strength. Free play, loose parts, open and unstructured material startle us daily because it transforms into what they decide and which are the fruit of their internal need. We propose a material without instructions, the only premise is to let do, without time, slowly. A material that incites, invites, causes the creation of diverse worlds, fantastic, realistic, invented …
