Our Story

We are a design-and-make studio producing contemporary furniture and lighting, based in New Zealand, with showrooms in Auckland and Melbourne. Our work explores the contrast of natural hand-crafted materials with elegant linear forms, searching for the perfect balance between tactility and poetry.

The provocation of fine art, the lessons of design history, and a dedication to immaculately beautiful craftsmanship inform our process. We believe in the honesty of pure materials, and in recognising the many hands and minds that help shape every piece of our work. We love the energy of creative collaborations with our fellow designers and makers around the world.

We are Douglas Snelling and Bec Dowie. Father and daughter. Designer and maker. Dreamers and doers both.
