History

In the spring of 2016, Jan Nackaerts and Dirk Oelbermann decided to join forces to create an interior design collection. Both live in the Tuscan hills close to Volterra. One having a lifelong experience as an entrepreneur and designer, the other a legal and business background, Jan and Dirk were convinced that the specialized craftsmanship that is still thriving in Italy would be the perfect base for a design collection.

 

Jan took on the design of the objects and then handpicked local manufacturers. Now, 7 months later, Jan and Dirk are very proud to present the first OCCRA items, all locally produced by very motivated and extremely capable craftsmen.

Design and philosophy

OCCRA aims to be a collection based on highly skilled craftsmanship. We prefer using both traditional and natural materials such as wood, marble, glass and metals whilst respecting our local roots and environment. However, we do not exclude the use of modern production methods and new materials. The driving force is creativity.
 
All products are designed by Jan Nackaerts who works closely with each of the manufacturers.

Materials

Wood

We work with local woods such as ash, lark, oak and chestnut to minimize our ecological footprint.

Walnut
 

 

Marble

OCCRA is located close to the Carara marble quarries, and the objects are produced locally. The marble gets handpicked for colors, veins and we select based on transparency for lighting objects.

Glass

For glass objects we mainly work in the world-famous Murano with the old tradition and current craftsmanship.

 
 

Metals

Shaping, welding and finishing of brass, copper, steel and aluminium. Each of the materials asks for a unique approach. Our highly specialized craftsmanship leads to perfectly shaped products.
