For founder Nicholas Andina, his self-titled label is an outlet for his artisanal skills and his passion for design. All by himself he is producing unique furniture items out of untreated steel that are bound to stand the test of time. Initially after his studies, Nicholas Andina worked as a metal constructor and metal construction draftsman. However, although the artisanal work in these professions was interesting, he wanted to explore his abilities and techniques in more creative, artistic ways. At the time he began designing and constructing furniture for himself and friends and, in 2015, he decided to concentrate fully on his passion to form andina.
