Design Studio RATIA

Design Studio RATIA is a dynamic, creative, reliable and versatile design studio, which is famous for it's timelessly beautiful, high quality products.

Our concepts need to withstand time, not only in the quality of finish and materials, but also in their esthetic design. Passing fads and disposability are not part of our definition of good design. We aim to create tomorrow's classics, products that will delight the end users for years in their everyday life.

Our strengths are long experience, versatility and a famous brand. We also offer an excellent price-to-quality ratio, since our design philosophy is that our products have to be affordable, even when their quality is top notch.
