WE LOVE NUZZLES



Nuzzles are custom designed wooden typographic puzzles handcrafted by John Christenson, a Chicago-based designer.
Inspired by a wooden name puzzle he received as a child, he began designing his own puzzles for family and friends, and called them ‘Nuzzles.’


Every Nuzzle is carved from of a single block of wood on a scroll saw. Each name or word is custom-designed, and each piece ‘nuzzles’ together using a unique connecting system. Finally, the Nuzzle is hand-sanded and stained for a lasting and durable finish.


Want One ? Check out the Nuzzles website.

EXPERIENCE WOOD



For wood lovers, a collection of twenty one different woods, each with their typical grain and colouring . They range from pale, almost grainless linden wood to intensively grained pinewoods, and to the beautiful brown tone of walnut. If the printed side is turned over, it becomes even more interesting – what is this, sweet chestnut or pear wood?
