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.
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.
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.
Panda joined MoziDozen in 2013, assisting Dozen in his craft. In 2015, she founded Woof & Goods with her husband; the shop is a pet accessories shop promoting pet-friendly concepts. Yet she remains a partner of MoziDozen and is now responsible for model building.
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.
