Our Story


"Appreciation is an excellent thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us, as well."  - Volataire

Kipekee Studio began in a garage in Salt Rock in 2017 — by owners, Michael Bornman and Kylie Bornman. Kipekee pursuing the belief that our everyday spaces should be a reflection of our experiences and aspirations - spaces of transformational living. We produce furniture items on the common love for design, simplicity of lines, and a timeless aesthetic. The core of what we do is informed by the beauty, structure, and depth of nature. 

 Michael passionate about architectural forms, making and deconstructing things, has poured into a team and educated them on all his knowledge.

A few years down the line of tinkering with their heads down and more grateful than ever, you’ll find that considered design still informs everything we do. It’s evident in each piece of furniture we craft and all we have set out to do.
