Martelo and Mo is a bespoke-design studio passionate about designing and creating functional furniture and homewares from sustainably sourced materials.
We are a husband and wife team; Lucas and Monika.
Our brand, Martelo and Mo, is the culmination of our shared passion for creativity, aesthetics and enduring respect for the fruits of our planet. Martelo and Mo evolved from our wish to express these values through high-quality, handcrafted pieces of furniture, made with our minds and hands.
THE MARTELO AND MO APPROACH – INDIVIDUAL, SUSTAINABLE AND BEAUTIFUL.
In every project we take on, our inspiration is taken from you, our customers. Nothing is out of the question, and we always try to bring you along on the furniture-making journey with us.
GENUINE SUSTAINABILITY IS A PRE-REQUISITE.
We only source our materials from FSC and PEFC-certified UK sawmills and repurpose as much timber as possible. We do that by applying a 'blocking technique' which rectifies knots and flaws, allowing us to use wood that might otherwise have been discarded by the mainstream companies, and adding a unique signature feature to each piece.
Lucas is a self-taught carpenter, who grew up in the Brazilian city of Sao Paolo and Monika worked in interior design with luxury brands and loves home decor.
"We hope that our passion for hardwood and the years of love and dedication to furniture-making is evident from the attention to detail we put into every piece of furniture we create."
Every piece is a very personal collaboration with the client's vision, and the challenge is to bring it to life.
And where does the name – Martelo and Mo – came from?
Martelo is the Portuguese word for a hammer – the very first tool we bought together – and Mo is Monika's nickname for Monika.
"It seems to sum up our partnership!"
