Ian was born and raised here in New Zealand and has always felt passionate about New Zealand and our ‘can do’ attitude. He tries to infuse a slice of Aotearoa into every piece created. Ian's career actually began in footwear design but his love of New Zealand timbers soon took over. Using his technical skills and experience from over the years Ian have developed a range he is truly proud of.
Now based in Auckland’s West Coast, Ian and his wife Kitty work from their studio creating and marketing our latest products.
Each product is cut using the latest laser technology then assembled and finished by hand. The majority of our products are made from kiln dried New Zealand Rimu Veneer and finished with an organic citrus based oil. Because Rimu has such a distinctive grain every one of our products is truly unique. The timber is Kiln dried so there is no issue sending or taking our product overseas, just remember to declare it on your customs form. If in time your product should need refreshing, simply ensure it is dust free and apply a small amount of vegetable oil with a soft cloth, then wipe away any excess
