Meet the artist & our team.
We love nature and natural materials, tradition and quality products.
What brought us all together is a common love for the natural beauty of the wood and the harmony of art.

The artist

The person behind all this beautiful unique wood design is the sculptor and designer Sasa Matjasic. Born in 1955 in Pula (Istria, Croatia), he graduated at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Zagreb in 1980. He moves to Zadar where he lives and works for several years and which he still often visits.

Surrounded by Mediterranean nature his desire to create reawakens and he starts forming his artistic expression. After his first solo exhibition held in Gallery Smitran in Pula in 1992, he decides to leave his profession and to fully devote himself to artistic work.

To date he has exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy. As an example of wood design his works were presented by the Croatian Chamber of Commerce in Sweden and France in year 2011.

Today he lives and works in Fazana, near the church of Saint Elisée (St. Elisha). The area is known by the natives under the name sanisio. For some time now in his work he includes young people willing to work with wood, passing on knowledge and experience.

sanisio artifacts are part of the Istrian cultural offer, recognizable for its unique wood design. And modern approach to wood processing applied in authentic surroundings and atmosphere.
