Let our works express the inspirations of life and pass them on to people, so that

they can find their enthusiasm in everyday life.

The name “MoziDozen” can be divided into two parts: Mozi and Dozen. Mozi is derived from the surname of the founder, Yi-Da Lee, as the word “Lee” can be dissected into “wood (pronounced as mo) and child (zi).” Dozen derives from the pronunciation of the first name, Yi-Da, which sounds the same as “dozen” in Chinese.

We are dedicated to living life, and are enthusiastic about woodwork and fond of lamp crafting, insisting on originality.

讓作品傳達我們對生活的感動,也把這份簡單的心意透過作品落實至每個人的生活裡

—MoziDozen 木子到森

 

 

Mozi來自創辦人李易達的“李-木子”

Dozen來自一打=易達

專心生活、喜愛木作、喜歡做燈、堅持原創。

The beauty of life has inspired us to create wooden houseware, home decorations, 

and lamps in our studio. For our family and for our customers, we create warmth, 

insist on details, and pursuit of quality. Wishing our creations can be used reliably 

and consistently, we also provide a long-term warranty and repair service. 

Our creations are mostly made from wood, be we also combine felt, 

pulp, and/or epoxy, to help us present the quality and beauty.

 

For the past 10 years, we have worked manually with power tools, 

yet 2019 we started working with CNC (to help manufacture the most popular products).

We consider this new technology as a partner, we choose to let it join our studio, 

to help create with us. For the better quality and flexibility, 

we do not outsource to other businesses.

Every one of these pieces of art is invested with devotion, 

We like to keep blank spaces on our works to encourage users make them their own. 

To different users, there are different appearances, since every piece of art is hand-made 

made to be perfect (in it’s own way). Every work is made and packaged by our hands, 

they are just like our children. Vitality, perseverance, and dedication, 

that is the most common feedback from our customers who have felt the warmth 

and hard-work form our creations.

 

我們從生活中的驚喜及感動作為靈感的原點,在家中的工作室親手製作木質的生活器物、家飾品、互動式燈具,為我們的家人,也為消費者創造生活及空間中的溫度,堅持在細節的講究及品質的追求,提供永久的作品維修服務,讓我們的心意能長遠流傳、產品能夠持續地被使用。

 

產品的製作,主要材質為木頭,在互動式燈具使用其餘能幫助我們呈現其質地的材質,如羊毛氈、紙漿、樹脂等,在工作室近十年的歷程中,我們全為手工搭配電動工具製作。2019年,我們為求取得更多時間製作新作品及有更精確、更有效率的製作,開始使用CNC加工,為追求品質及創作彈性,我們不是選擇交給工廠大量生產,而是將新技術視為工作夥伴,讓它加入工作室,與我們一起創造新產品。將更多的心力專注於加工後的砂磨加工,持續透過細緻的木頭質地,讓我們所喜愛木質,得到最溫潤及純粹的表現。

 

喜歡在使用者及產品間留白,讓產品能夠與使用者產生互動,不僅是單純地被使用,同時也能夠在使用的片刻,在無形的氛圍上產生一些溫度,或因為使用者的不同,在使用後產生不同的樣貌。每一件作品皆經由我們的雙手產出及包裝,就像是我們的孩子一樣,具有生命力,而這也是時常收到客人的回饋,能感受到我們的用心及產品所帶給他們的溫暖。

Director-Dozen Lee

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.

 

李易達 (Yi-Da Lee)

學生時期開始於家中自學木作,結合在學期間所學的機械概念。2009年於高雄創立MoziDozen木子到森工作室,至今作品多以生活感受為靈感,創作出各種生活道具,喜歡做燈,在迎接女兒來到生命後,展開互動式燈飾的創作之路。靠自學習得木工技巧,將來自生活的感動,透過木作創作出有溫度的作品,將燈具開關的使用轉化為更有力度及感染力的使用過程。2017年由晨星出版社出版『木子到森的木質手感生活』、2019年榮獲亞洲手創展『大人物』獎項。2020年全家從台南遷居台東,期望能陪伴孩子們在更純粹的環境下成長及生活,同時,創作出更貼近於生活溫度的作品。

 

 

 

Manager-Matilda Gao

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.

高薇婷 (Wei-Ting Gao)

從孩童時期即對手做充滿興趣,喜歡動手做(尤其布織品)。2010年因木作工作坊與當時的講師Dozen認識、戀愛、共同經營空間、共組家庭。目前為工作室的管理者,半個創作者及製作者,攝影、小編、品管、客服、對外聯絡窗口等。協助Dozen創作及工作室的營運。

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.

乖、貝貝 (Xiao-Guai and Bei-Bei)

Dozen、薇婷的兩個寶貝女兒,工作室許多受歡迎的作品都是因她們而生,擅長在家裡學動物四處蹦蹦跳跳,及使用任何生活中能找到的素材,玩各式各樣的遊戲。她們的存在帶給了MoziDozen截然不同的生命體驗及創作能量。

寫於2020.08.15

這是我們搬到臺東鹿野的第三個月,從工作室2009年成立至今,也隨著我們的生活變化,換了四個空間,從Dozen單身時的高雄個人工作室,2010年因嚮往台南的創作圈生活,遷至台南北園街一間80年的老宅,作為住家及工作室,也因此開始接觸舊檜木,開始了以舊木料為素材的創作之路。2011年,遷進一棟四層樓的老房子,經營展間及民宿。2012年成家,接著迎接大女兒來到生命裡,一路上創作與生活密不可分,堅持生活空間及工作室必須得在一起的Dozen,也因為女兒來到這個世界,改變了創作的題材,原來就喜歡做燈的他,更將趣味加入燈飾的開與關,想讓孩子們在使用作品時,利用互動的方式將光亮帶到生活裡,就像是孩子來到他的生命裡,所帶給他的感動。2015年,在迎接二女兒的到來之前,為了更專心的創作及生活,結束了於市區的展間及民宿,全家遷居至台南新營的小村落-鐵線橋裡,在這段時間讓鄉下的生活環境滋養創作,在工作之餘,專心地陪伴孩子成長,也從她們身上學習,再將這些生活所給予我們的養分轉換為能量,灌注在我們的創作中。

       2019年,我們開始渴望更純淨的生活,也希望能夠給孩子們更純粹的學習環境,決定遷居至台東鹿野,在這裡除了山帶給我們生活的安定感及開闊,也期待在新空間中,能夠發生更多與喜愛MoziDozen的朋友們交流的可能性。
