Holtzundmetal is a design studio focused on creating unique furniture objects that fulfill modern functional and stylistic tastes for a select clientele that is concerned with quality, emotional resonance, and timelessness.
Holtzundmetal was created 15 years ago in Toronto, Canada. The name merges the German words ‘wood’ and ‘metal’ as well as the founders middle name ‘Holt’.
It is furniture that is simple, beautiful, and excellently designed and crafted. Its furniture, that to us, will last a lifetime.
Our boutique resort is now complete with the beautiful furniture supplied by Holtzundmetal.
At Holtzundmetal we believe sustainability is about consuming less. We aim to provide objects that functionally and stylistically out perform the competition.
We engage local resources, craftsman and technology to create a robust low carbon supply chain to deliver high quality objects with low mileage.
We design furniture with emotional durability. The ideal outcome means users won’t get tired of stylistic fad and throw away their object. Instead we design to be timeless and emotionally resonate for decades.
We apply cradle to cradle furniture solutions. Solid wood that is responsibly sourced is an ideal material that can be absorbed back into the earth, without harm, at the end of its life cycle. Metal is also an ideal material as it can be recycled continuously to be used in many applications for many years.
