Material selection

The wood

We only use native wood from FSC certified forests or recycled wood coming from timber-framed buildings.
As we explain in our blog post, we found that processing the recycled wood uses 13 times less energy than regular wood. For us, reclaimed wood is the most sustainable alternative compared to other sources of timber. We also use FSC certified NZ Southland beech.


Other materials

We focus on mature recyclable materials, like steel, aluminium or brass, as they can be infinitely recycled. We are also always in research of innovative and sustainable materials.

Manufacturing process

We keep it local


New Zealand is a unique place where we manufacture our furniture.
By sourcing our materials and making it local, we choose to reduce carbon emissions and pollution happening during transport while promoting the national industry.

We handcraft our products

We make durable products all handmade in Auckland.

Non-toxic components

We care about indoor air quality

Regular consumables may release harmful substances. When identifying our glues, paints and finishes, we select products with zero to low VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds); To know more about

non toxic furniture read our blog post on this topic.

We use a durable interior oil based on natural ingredients and renewable resources. The oil is solvent free, VOC free and free of harmful chemicals.

OUR ENGAGEMENT

Transparency is important for us. For each of our furniture, we display the origin and the percentage of recycled materials used to manufacture it.
