After moving to Hokitika in 1971, Mark Zuckerman began building his own home complete with handmade doors, window-frames and cabinetry. This was the beginning of his desire to immerse himself in woodwork and MZ Design was created. From his home on the West Coast, Mark finds inspiration in the peacefulness of our natural environment.  His respect and appreciation of our natural environment is reflected in his stylishly minimalist designs which let the materials speak for themselves.  


We have a range of handcrafted native timber homewares from MZ Design, perfect for sentimental gifts and beautiful table settings.
