Fritz & wood is the meeting between wood, crafts, creativity, Julia Fritz and her collaborators.
We design, create and produce exclusive furniture, art and unique pieces with noble woods with our hands. In addition, we carry out custom projects and offer restoration and transformation services for antique furniture.

Design and production km.0
All our pieces are designed and built 100% in Catalonia. The designs of marquetry and the structures of plywood are made by fritz and wood.
Solid wood or metal structures such as the pressing process are in charge of collaborators in the area of Barcelona.
In addition, our suppliers and collaborators receive a fair rate for their work and our production is not carried out in countries with less labor rights and lower wages.
We design and create all the pieces by hand.
We seek the best quality, durability and sustainability, that is why we use noble woods such as oak, teak or ash for the structures. We also work pieces with strong metal
structures and models with plywood.
For the marquetry designs we work with oak, ash, eucalyptus, walnut, Cuban mahogany, wenge, magnolia, cherry, cedar, cypress, bobinga, maple, rosewood, Ceylon lemongrass, teak or coral.
