Walk in the Park

Welcoming a new selection of Walk in the Park...    

Walk in the Park believe in a simple, honest approach to design where aesthetics and utility are intrinsic. Made in their woodturning studio in Titirangi, New Zealand, Sam and Jiho design and create sculptural and functional wooden objects.

This week we are over the moon to present an elegant selection of Walk in the Park objects, some of which are adored with a new finish: a traditional lacquer called Urushi. Every piece is made by hand using tradition turning techniques which expose different patterns and grains within the woods surface. Each piece is, therefore, unique to you. A tactile devotion and practice of patience is found within the quiet form and essence that is Walk in the Park. Learn more about Urushi below.

Urushi is a traditional lacquer that comes from the sap of the Asian lacquer tree. This finishing makes the surface of objects very durable. Due to its high performance in preserving objects, it has been widely used for art works and food utensils in East Asia countries. The charming shiny and slick surface is made when it absorbs moisture from the air during curing and its multiple layers and slow drying process makes it very hard.
