It was an absolute honour to be involved with this project and the official proceedings on Friday to bring the Pounamu from Canterbury Museum to the new Department of Conservation visitor centre at the Christchurch i-site in the historic Arts Centre. The totara pedestal that cradles the Pounamu was designed and crafted by Tréology.
The Penthouse, Eichardt's presented Tréology with a wonderful opportunity to showcase the very best of New Zealand timber.
I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding work you’ve done for us. All the pieces you made for the Penthouse are wonderful and most befitting of Eichardt’s.

We were looking to identify a 'very special' piece of timber for the entrance of our home in West Wanaka. Andrew professionally presented a proposal based on a selected piece of ancient Kauri, exhibiting the unique 'fiddleback' grain.
Andrew worked closely with our local metal fabricator, to identify the best method for mounting the slab on our schist wall to provide a floating effect.
Installation went smoothly, and all parties involved were really pleased with the end result. The Kauri slab catches everyone's attention as they enter our house, and they cannot resist to run their hands over this lovely piece of timber. Overall, our expectations have been exceeded.

Tréology Bespoke Tasting Table
The Waenga Table for Felton Road Wines measures 4 metres, with the timber being rescued from the Manawatu River, New Zealand. The Base is 12mm toughened glass.
Tréology were selected by us for our winery furniture after a careful search. Their enthusiasm for using recovered native timber was key, but also their ability to think with us as we evolved design solutions that were anything but standard. The results were right first time and of the highest quality.
