Más in Spanish means more. More and more people gathered together form a mass. Pet shop boys were proclaiming some time ago that Less is More*. On the other hand, Donatella Versace has been always thinking that more is always more. We at Yatzer have not made our minds as we think that beauty can be found in exclusivity as well as in mass production, but we are totally sure of one thing:  that we want more and more of massproductions’ work!

They say that they develop high quality, tactile furniture in a modernist spirit. And it looks good. They also say that after working for many years side by side as consultants for the furniture industry, they decided to produce and market their own collections. In this way, they liberate themselves from the filters normally used by a producer and can finally make products that they would otherwise get stuck somewhere in the development process. And this ‘why not do it yourself’ attitude looks even better. We invite you to enjoy the latest creations of Chris Martin and Magnus Elebäck that combined English spirit and Swedish tradition to give us some of the most interesting furniture we have seen lately.

*Less is More" is a quote from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, architect and leader of the Bauhaus movement in Germany, subsequently taken as a motto for minimalist design.

    Very creative work, I would like to see more of Massproductions... Cause as Madonna said once, "nothing's better than more".
