Each piece is handmade in a workshop in Christchurch, New Zealand. The veneer is sourced from Auckland, and all the other components are made by local Christchurch firms. The copper wire is reclaimed fromĀ old internet cables being replaced in Christchurch, and it is straightened and hand polished in the workshop. The designers have chosen their materials carefully, with sustainability and recycling in mind.

The Twist is a simple form, made from one wide strip of wood, joined inside with a tab and slot. When lit, the wood glows from within producing a lovely warm light and showcasing the natural woodgrain. The lamp shade can be ordered online and ships worldwide.
