About us

Modern Gesture believes that in each piece created a story is embedded into its materials, capturing the time and care engaged in the creation of each item. This practice ensures that each piece holds its own unique characteristics. Each product is hand crafted to engage our attention through the use of materials, shape and final design, allowing for a new approach to quality, innovative design and simplicity, but still holds an international appeal without losing its local relevance and sentiments.
