At Shizen Studio, every consideration is made to respect the earth and her inhabitants. Each design is intended to foster a sense of connection to the natural world.

Materials are carefully selected for sustainability and durability, such as reclaimed local timber, salvaged stone, metal with high recycled content, and FSC certified wood. Finishes are natural oil and wax based and glues are water-based and non-toxic. All packing materials are reusable, biodegradable and recyclable.

Designs are produced by a network of skilled makers that share a commitment to the environment, local community and quality craftsmanship. Furniture pieces are built one at a time to reduce waste, eliminate overproduction, and ensure that each piece is unique. Made carefully by hand using traditional techniques, each design is produced with intention and soul.

Every detail from start to finish was considered countless times. If you have questions that are not addressed above, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
