The FEHLŌ collection represents the answer to a challenge: Take the objects that we touch daily and impart them with values that resonate beyond our lifetime. Values like aesthetic beauty, durability, and a timeless utility. A dynamic group of artist-designers approached this challenge with a standard of functional and aesthetic integrity that we expect—but too rarely find—in home goods. By collaborating closely with small, US-based manufacturers, FEHLŌ maintains the highest quality of craftsmanship through each product’s journey, from ideation to prototyping to finished product. We produce small run, high quality lighting, furnishings, kitchenware, and tabletop accessories for people who want to maintain a standard akin to our own. The best. The brightest. This collection makes good on upholding simple core ideas: using sustainable materials, working with brilliant makers, creating timeless designs, and sharing prosperity across a network of makers who grow as we do. Since our conception in 2013, we have expanded those connections and grown our product line to be available around the world. We hope you’ll enjoy using them as much as we enjoyed making them.

“AT THE HEART OF ANY DESIGNED OBJECT IS THE PROCESS OF IDEATION: THE PRACTICE OF GENERATING AND CONVEYING IDEAS. STARTING WITH THE VAGUE CONCEPT OF AN OBJECT AND EXPLORING OUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FUNCTION AND FORM, AND FINALLY MOVING THROUGH SKETCHES, PROTOTYPES AND REDESIGNS UNTIL THE TRUE INTENT AND MATERIALS WORK TOGETHER IN HARMONY.”

-ZAC LOPEZ-IBANEZ FOUNDER

PIZZA PEEL The pizza that’s perfectly round, with toppings precision placed and cheese uniformly over-applied... That’s some other guy’s order. Your pizza is art. You put your back into your dough and passion into the ingredients, along with some measure of restraint. You’re working with your senses and creating a craft. Here is a pizza peel that reflects the artifice of a fine pie. A quick spin of the handle through your palm before retrieving the pizza from the oven: Comfortable utility. Slice and serve on the board, leaving the newest score to reveal the history of your passion: Pride in presentation. Each peel is hand-shaped from domestically sourced Hard Maple, then treated and accent painted with FDA approved, food-safe finishes. As a final touch, each is hot iron branded with the craftsman’s mark.

REULEAUX CELLAR Salt is essential. Your craving, innate. The necessity, real. Man, you would die without it, and die for it. This most ancient seasoning has been revered since the dawn of time. And dating to the Roman Empire, salt cellars have proven the preferred vessel for storing and offering this staple at table and hearth. Your cellar is cast of materials nearly as timeless as the ingredient itself. Fine porcelain forms are finished with subtle a matte glaze. The wooden lid provides an effective closure against moisture while offering visual warmth. Though designed for salt, these vessels can store your favorite dry goods and sundries. We suggest you experiment.

TONGS You don’t think about your food. You feel for it. You invest emotion in what you eat. But how do you show the degree to which you respect the farmers and growers who provide the bounty? Through the servingware and utensils you use. Whether you’re serving salad to company or preserving your fingertips from heat; these tongs bring your highest regard to the table. Made from domestically sourced hardwoods and finished with an inert milk-paint accent and high quality food-grade mineral oil, everything about these tongs is meant to last. Tongs are offered in two sizes to fit your needs. And as with all of our products, these are made by hand.

THE IDEAL CUP There, the water flows from the sky and through layers of rock and sand. Filtered and imparted with minerals, it has its own pure force. Fluvial, it springs. Why interrupt this purity with plastics? Chemicals? Like the water, your ceramic cup is of the earth. Pure, inert, cool like the stream. The Ideal Cup thoughtfully combines the high elegance of porcelain with a natural form that fits the hand’s proportions. Each is finished with a clear matte interior, contrasted with the luster of an exterior surface that has been extensively and precisely sanded, creating a finish so soft it begs to be held. Oven and dishwasher safe, this is your one cup. For every sip. For every occasion.

ALBERS CHAIR “The whole secret to designing a chair is applying the seat of your pants to the seat of the chair” -Wendell Castle It is true that any plane that you slouch against could be regarded as a chair. But when you give something your full attention, you do not slouch. You are upright, attentive, poised. The Albers Chair demands attention. It pays homage to the interaction of warm woods and fine textiles. It makes good on the promise of good posture without sacrificing comfort. Crafted from expertly selected American Walnut and Hard Maple, each chair is handmade in our Western North Carolina studio with the utmost attention to detail. Perfect for dining, entryway or general seating.
