A Who’s Who Of The Talented Craftspeople We Collaborate With
It can sometimes take a long time to find the right hands to hold and realize a collection. Knowing a craft inside and out takes dedication and focus, and finding the team or person who can weave their skills with our designs takes commitment. We have driven up and down the length of New Zealand in this search, but every time we find the right team or right person, it’s as if a spark is ignited and the idea burns even brighter for having found its maker. Pouring over drawings, sketching ideas in sawdust, catching the inspiration in the air, we do whatever it takes to pass our concept into their capable hands, and the outcome has been so exciting.
Thus far we have six wonderful teams/makers dedicated to different materials in our growing catalogue:
Treology Tréology was created in 2011 by Andrew and Melany-Jayne Davies. With a 150 year family legacy of luxury furniture-making behind them, Andrew and Melany-Jayne wanted to combine this traditional craftsmanship with contemporary art and design. They also wanted to share their love of the New Zealand landscape through functional art with clients throughout the world. This has lead them to collaborate with LyZadie Design on the Flow Collection: a range of luxury furniture that is inspired by the braided rivers of New Zealand’s South Island. With running brass and rescued river Rimu, the collection holds true to Tréology’s philosophy of connecting people and celebrating the wonder of nature. And with our designs and their focus on sourcing sustainable materials and impeccable craftsmanship, every piece in the Flow and Black Tree Fern collections is timeless.
