Founded by designers Surya Graf and Lindy Shaw, Waltz is 'a celebration of well designed and beautifully made lifestyle objects, to be used and cherished in the everyday'.
Out of their need and want for simple objects with integrity that would last a lifetime, Lindy and Surya began producing unique objects for themselves, what followed was a desire to then share these objects with the world. The launch of their own design studio and online store was the natural progression. Every product has been created with passion and produced with quality materials and craftsmanship. Waltz is for local manufacturing and people, not mass production.
Surya's 15 year career in industrial design has been informed by earlier years spent studying architecture and psychology. His interest of the affect of spaces on people lead him in to architecture, then ultimately industrial design, where objects became his focus.
Surya's design philosophy is materials led, process driven, with functionality top of mind, and a refined simplicity his trademark.
Surya's portfolio spans a diverse range of product, interior and urban design. He has exhibited in USA, Europe and Japan, been published nationally and undertaken projects internationally.
Lindy's desire to design for longevity, lead her to a career in architecture. For her, architecture meant creating timeless, flexible, enduring, beautiful spaces that should last generations.
This desire to design for longevity is what drives Lindy and informs Waltz' product offering.
