In an interview with, owner Akiko Sumulong shares the inspiration behind their designs. "They primarily highlight the beauty of the woodâits grain, color, and strength. We then give it certain functions to make it more meaningful," she says. "I wasn't really a fan of things that don't make sense or aren't functional so I made sure that this belief is reflected in our products."


Aside from making functional designs, they also make sure that the materials they use are sustainable by sourcing their wood from a supplier certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. "This means that our wood are from responsibly managed forests to ensure sustainable use of timber," she explains.
