Our products are sustainably crafted to be enduring and of the highest quality. The use of solid timber is no coincidence, our team of experienced makers have been working with timber for over 35 years. We are proud of our collaboration with Currumbin Woodworks, founded and run by Shari’s dad, Chris (top left above). Chris and Shari developed the original Fluxwood range of pendants together and now the team at Currumbin Woodworks craft our Tenn and Hollow Pendants, and complete all of our timber crafting and finishing work at their timber workshop in Currumbin. Timi (top right above) is on the workshop team and manages the Fluxwood timber production at Currumbin Woodworks.
With a deep understanding of the material, our team handcraft contemporary and high quality pendants from solid timber. Driven by a love for the craft, our makers create unique lighting which showcases the natural variations of Australian hardwood timbers.
