Moving Mountains is a studio founded by designer Syrette Lew, interested in combining forms at the intersection of design, art, and fashion. Committed to working with regional craftsmen and fabricators, the studio produces furniture and accessories that aim to achieve an artful functionality able to withstand the test of time. The studio also welcomes special projects, can provide general design services and consulting.
Works are mostly made to order. Please contact the studio for lead times. If you require a custom size or finish, or would like to commission an original piece, we are happy to discuss your needs. Select Moving Mountains pieces can be seen at the NYC showroom Colony (www.goodcolony.com). We recommend calling ahead to find out what is currently on view.
In 2014, Moving Mountains was awarded the Best Craftsmanship Award at the New York International Contemporary Furniture Fair and received a Metropolis Magazine Design Distinction Award. Our work has been featured in numerous publications such as Dwell, Elle Decor, Interior Design, Metropolis, and the NYTimes. Our studio was recently included in Dwell Magazine's "Young Guns 2015" list and spotlighted by the NYTimes in the 2015 T Magazine Design Issue.
The name Moving Mountains is a tribute to the Hawaiian archipelago and its imperceptible movement northwestward. Though born and raised in Honolulu, Syrette found her way to another island 5000 miles away. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
