Let our works express the inspirations of life and pass them on to people, so that
they can find their enthusiasm in everyday life.
Founded in 2009, our brand upholds the core philosophy of “Inspired by the beautiful moments and feelings in life, we make living utensils and lamps by hand to showcase the warmth that life has to offer” and insist on maintaining craftsmanship features and quality.
We produce most of our products using wood as our main material, while incorporating various materials, such as wool felt and paper pulp. Moreover, we use the CNC inside our studio to fabricate blanks and hand polish them into finished products that demonstrate the beauty and warmth of wood in its purest form to serve our customers in their daily lives.
We use “the beautiful moments of life” as the source of our inspiration, such as (a) placing dandelion seeds blown by children in the wild or flowers arranged using wild flowers and grass inside flower containers to add warmth to life; (b) creating lamps that illuminate after children fall asleep (as they listen to bedtime stories told by their parents) as a way of providing the children company. Our products are practical and, because of their interactive usage methods, enable our customers to use them at ease and be moved emotionally. Furthermore, we uphold the philosophies of endeavoring in pure creation, adding warmth to our customers’ lives through our products, and making our brand unique.
To achieve brand sustainability and protect the Earth, our studio offers lifetime maintenance services. We will repair our products for our customers no matter what the problems or date of manufacture. The reason why we offer such a guarantee is because as far as we are concerned, our customers coming back to us signifies that our products have become an important part of their lives. We use honeycomb paper and self-made cloth bags as our packaging materials because we prefer packaging materials that can be used repeatedly, minimizing the burden we impose on the planet, making small contributions to the protection of the environment, thereby fulfilling our responsibilities as manufacturers.
Our design concepts are creating products that can add warmth to our customers’ lives and engender a sense of aesthetics when they are used.
Members of the studio
A self-taught carpenter when he was still studying at school, Dozen incorporated concepts of mechanics he had learned and founded MoziDozen Studio in Kaohsiung in 2009. He has created a wide variety of daily goods and furniture, and is especially passionate about making lamps. Most of his craftworks are inspired by feelings triggered by his life. After his daughter’s birth, he embarked on the career of creating interactive lamps; he turned the inspirations of life into woodcraft via his carpenter skills, creating crafts with warmth: even a flip of a switch becomes a powerful process through which warmth floods into people’s life. In 2017, Dozen published a book titled Woody Feel Life with the publisher, MorningStar, and received the PUA Maker’s Award at Pop Up Asia 2019. In 2020, he moved from Tainan to Taitung with his family, hoping to create works closer to people’s life experiences while accompanying his kids as they grow up in a less sophisticated environment.
Since childhood, Matilda has been mesmerized by craft. She likes crafting-making by hand, especially making things with fabrics. She got to know Dozen when he lectured in a woodworking workshop in 2010. They fell in love, managed the studio together, and started a family. She is currently serving as the studio manager while working as a part-time creator. She is also in charge of photography, social media, quality control, customer service, and public relations. Thanks to her, Dozen can focus on his creations, and the studio can also operate smoothly.
Lulu joined MoziDozen in 2020 and is working to become the chief assistant of the studio.
▍Our inspiration – Jasmine and Bella
Jasmine and Bella, daughters of Dozen and Matilda, inspired many popular craftworks produced by the studio. They are good at mimicking animals, scampering around the house, and they can use whatever materials are available at hand to play all kinds of games. Their existence bestows MoziDozen with unparalleled life experiences and energy for creation.
