Your favorite readings always at hand / 

Readme is a minimalistic and functional object designed to help you creating a reading corner wherever you are. A portable book rack, inspired by cloth hangers, that you can attach anywhere there is a nail, screw, wall hook or even a doorknob. This is a special, limited and numbered edition, just for Kickstarter Make 100.

Readme is light, portable and durable and it mixes minimalistic design with the warmth of wood and the authenticity of a handmade object.

Functional design combined with craftsmanship / 

Readme is a totally handcrafted object, made of 0.6 mm thick oak and ash wood veneers combined in a seven-layer sandwich, glued and curved using custom made molds.

After a drying period of 24 hours, parts are unmolded, shaped carefully and finished by hand, one by one.

 For reading lovers / 

The perfect match for those of us who love reading. Wheter you like novels, comic books and graphic novels or trend magazines, Readme will help you to have them at your fingertips.

 Two styles to fit your personality / 

Readme is handmade from natural wood veneers and that allows me to customize its aesthetics to fit your personal tastes. That´s why this special collection comes in two editions.

Natural. Oak wood finished carefully by hand with transparent wax to nurture, protect and enhance wood beauty.

Classic. Oak wood, stained with a natural walnut tint, made from walnut shells and water, and finished by hand with transparent wax, to achieve that vintage looking.

About me / 

From a very young age I have always loved to pick up anything within reach and take it apart, or use it to create new gadgets. I would put icicle sticks together to create airscrews for planes whose wings I made out of an old kite’s fabric; or cut up soda cans which later became submarine hulls. I was always surrounded by scissors, tools and glue. 

I studied Design in Barcelona, where I used to dream of one day creating iconic products such as those by famous designers like  The Eames, Arne Jacobsen and Naoto Fukasawa.

I hope you like this project and decide to support it!

I will be very grateful if you share this project if you loved it ;)

Thank you and best regards,

About Oitenta /

Oitenta is an independent design studio located in A Coruña devoted to creating special handcrafted objects for those seeking designer products which not only suit their needs, but also relate to their values and particular worldview.

Oitenta’s objects tell the story of a creation process and artisanal manufacture: the fusion of modern design and traditional craftsmanship. Concerned with ethical consumerism, with owning less but more special products, these objects develop a bond with the client by making them part of the creation process of their custom-made objects which are adapted to their needs and taste to make them feel like their own.

Risks and challenges

I´ve been making and selling online my objects for more than two years now. I always work on demand with handmade and design lovers from around the world. In this time, I´ve sent more than 300 objects from to 25 countries. I´m hard worker and I previously talked with my wood supplier, courier companies and I´m ready to go!
