While the world’s attention has been understandably focused on the global pandemic still sweeping the planet, the looming threat of climate change has not gone away. It remains an ever-present note to humanity to consider the future we want to live through. At LyZadie Design Studio we are mindful of the impact our choices make on your choices. We are mindful of our responsibility to tread lightly on our earth.
To this end our designs have always focused on making a minimal environmental impact. We look for new materials that can operate in a circular economy – ensuring that the finite resources available aren’t exhausted by our manufacturing processes. Where possible, we use resources that have already seen a life, and bring them out of the line-up for landfill into new, lasting designs. What’s more we pride ourselves in providing transparency in that manufacture process. We have committed to ensuring sustainability is at the heart of what we do.

Within our timber collections, FLOW and BLACKTREE FERN, the hero is the Rescued River Matai and Rimu. Timbers native to New Zealand, the raw logs are sourced from the rivers of the South Island where the icy waters weather and colour them into gorgeous tones. But importantly to us, and to our makers Treology, this timber is a rescued resource, one used without impact on the current tree cover of Aotearoa. Starting life in the wild South Island, the timber comes to us from the beautiful West Coast rivers but its final journey to you recognises this lineage, with a GPS location marker under each piece to record where the tree came from.
