Moving Mountains is a collection by Hawaiian-born but now Brooklynite Syrette Lew. She designs bags and jewelry in her own studio, but her speciality is furniture design.
The objects in this collection balance between useful simplicty and playful quirkiness. Geometric shapes and spunky colours give them a modern, minimalist vibe with a twist. The name Moving Mountains is a tribute to the Hawaiian archipelago and its “imperceptible movement northwestward”: the island are constantly moving up north.
All objects are made of handcrafted woodworking techniques, in combination with black steel. Lew uses wood, because there’s a familiarity to it that no other material has. This makes it a perfect material for at home, and adds a sense of timelessness.
