Douglas & Bec
Furniture & Lighting Design
Collingwood, VIC, Australia
Douglas & Bec are a design-and-make studio producing contemporary furniture and lighting, based in New Zealand, with showrooms in Auckland and Melbourne. Their work seeks to explore the contrast of natural hand-crafted materials with elegant linear forms, searching for the perfect balance between tactility and poetry.
The provocation of fine art, the lessons of design history, and a dedication to immaculately beautiful craftsmanship inform their design process. Douglas & Bec believe in the honesty of pure materials, and in recognising the many hands and minds that help shape every piece of work produced within their studio. They love the energy of creative collaborations with their fellow designers and makers around the world.
