There comes a time when we ask ourselves about the richness in our surrounding environment. Let it be friends, family, food, furniture or clothing, we want things true to their source and that can add value to our lives.

Our line of wood-based furniture is sustainably sourced from the depths of Lake Bayano. We work with the indigenous community diving out logs from the 354km2 of flooded rainforest which would go to waste if not rediscovered.  A new life is giving to these trees as they are dived and cut down under water. The emerging log is then dimensioned accordingly and kelm dried to provide us with a unique and sustainable building material to craft the enduring furniture that brings life into our households today. 

Recovering trees that would otherwise be lost, diminishes the need to exploit resources on land, it provides a safer body of water for navigation to the local indian population and it provides a unique and sustainably-certified building material.  

Our line of furniture focuses on Live Edge tables, desks, chopping boards, wooden tiles for flooring and Melbourne styled Walls.  We work at hand with architects and interior designers. 

Our work is designed and handcrafted at the heart of the Americas in Panama City, Panama.
