Inspired by Nature | The Moonflower is named after the “Sedap Malam” flower, which is spread across homes and temples in Bali, Indonesia. Sedap Malam means “sweetness of the night” in Indonesian, as the flower blossoms only under moonlight when it spreads a sweet, fragrant smell. The shape was inspired directly by the organic shapes seen in the rich flora and fauna in the local landscape. The Moonflower hair slide is a functional and timeless piece.
Planting trees is one of the best ways to fight climate change. Trees not only absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, they also provide a habitat for a diverse range of species in the rainforest.

Wood is only a renewable and eco-friendly material if it is consciously sourced. Tropical hardwoods in particular grow very slowly and in low densities, and regenerate poorly after logging. These species are often taken from forests in non-sustainable numbers, and illegal ways.
Searching for a way of sourcing wood sustainably, SAYA Designs came across Made & Ways, sculptors who dig up and recycle root wood from old commercial plantations all across Indonesia. The roots are left behind by loggers harvesting trees on large-scale production sites. They take hundreds of years to decompose and have little value for the soil.
By using this waste material we are having as little impact on the environment as possible.
Recycled Tamarind Root
Tamarind is a soft wood usually planted for its sweet fruits. The tamarind fruit is popular in eastern cooking, as well as being used in many cosmetic products. It has a very light colour, and red and purple grains sometimes criss-cross its centre. Scientific name: Tamarindus Indica
Recycled Teak Root
The heartwood of teak (the centre of the tree) is a brownish red in colour, and it’s sapwood (the outer part) is a pale yellowish brown. Native to South East Asia it is valued for its durability and as such is in high demand for boat building, construction, and furniture. This has led to overexploitation, however, there has been a recent rise in the number of sustainable teak plantations throughout the seasonally dry tropics. Scientific name: Tectona grandis
