We find our inspiration in nature, because it is constantly changing and complex. Everything leads back to the four elements. These elements are all truly unique and complement each other. Only by combining these four elements, a tree can survive.
Water nurtures the tree, and needs the air to breath. The warmth of the sun gives the tree its power to grow and its roots find an anchor in the earth below.
The distinctiveness of the four elements is reflected in the selected collection. We designed a selection of 4 models that are different in their combination of woodsorts and material. But in the end these four ‘elements’ together form a solid collection in which creativity meets nature.
Different parts of the world we visited during our travels inspired us for this collection.
From the Chinese bamboo forest at the gate of Beijing, across the characteristic national park of Sanjay and the hectic city of Mumbai in India, to the old Hawaiian surfboards made of different layers of wood.
Our Classic and casual styles of this collection evolved over the years into sunglasses that are stronger, thinner, and optimised with more finesse..
We aim to let people feel unique with one of our wooden products. Due to our experience we have the know-how to create a natural look and feel. Furthermore, we feel that special products and combinations can only emerge by experiment.
These experiments led to two projects so far. The Marangu is made of stone combined with oak. The second project is the Sugho. The frame consists out of four alternate layers of maple and walnut and is finished by a cork layer made out of the bark from the Quercus tree.
