Two passionate designers, Phillip Hollander and Stephen Wilson, who have come together to make beautiful, useful furniture to live with. Houtlander cares about basic human principles of inclusivity, environment and legacy and connected with a single aim to design accessible and covetable furniture. They admire modernist design, especially the Scandinavian aesthetic, respect the tried and tested methods of centuries of traditional joinery and to employ modern methods to create functional pieces with a future heritage.
Minimalist in design and environmental impact houtlander creates furniture that is tooled with remarkable accuracy without using a single nail or screw. Primarily oak is used simply because it is so well-loved and is a high quality sustainably harvested hardwood – Houtlander furniture is light in style and weight but strong and hardwearing, simply designed for everyday life.
