For over 30 years the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) has been at the forefront of international wood promotion, successfully building a distinctive and creative brand for U.S. hardwoods. AHEC’s global programme of activities secure a future for American hardwoods by demonstrating the performance and aesthetic potential of these sustainable materials, while providing valuable creative inspiration and technical advice.
Created by two passionate designers, Phillip Hollander and Stephen Wilson, who have come together to make beautiful, useful furniture. Houtlander both cares about basic human principles of inclusivity, environment and legacy and connected with a single aim to design accessible and covetable furniture. It admires modernist design, especially the Scandinavian aesthetic, respects the tried and tested methods of centuries of traditional joinery and challenges ourselves to employ modern methods to create functional pieces with a future heritage.
