Moving Mountains is a studio rooted in industrial design practices interested in moving beyond its boundaries to the convergence of design, art and fashion. The studio strives to create a diverse range of domestically made products that exude a refined sense of simplicity and artful functionality able to withstand the test of time.
All furniture pieces are handcrafted of solid wood and built to last for a long time. Occasionaly the studio may have stock of an item but they are usually made to order so please contact the studio for lead time and delivery quote. If you require a special size and/or finish of an existing item or are interested in a custom furniture piece, the studio would be happy to discuss your needs.
The name Moving Mountains is both an allusion and tribute to the Hawaiian archipelago and its imperceptible movement northwestward. In fact, all mountains are moving on this Earth but the Hawaiian Islands are possibly the most explicit example of this geological phenomena. Though born and raised in Hawaii, Syrette Lew managed to find her way to yet another island 5000 miles away named and recognized for its “length”. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
