Founded by Melbourne builder Oliver MacLatchy in late 2013, Wood Melbourne is the result of Oliver’s passion for tinkering and experimenting with timber and different materials in his workshop. Following the successful launch of his first tapware range in 2014, Oliver has set about crafting his second range, this time incorporating raw brass into spouts and tapware.

The first piece to be launched in the new range is the Jo-Hannah brass spout. Utilising the painstaking hand-made craftsmanship and raw materials that Wood Melbourne are known for, the Jo-Hannah brass spout showcases minimalist sophistication and quality. Next in Wood Melbourne’s new range of timber tapware is the Oscar round timber tap – made by hand using the finest reclaimed Blackbutt timber and are finished with a splash-proof wax to preserve the character of the timber.

The taps can be matched and combined with any of the existing Wood Melbourne range of tapware and basins. Each individual Wood timber spout is designed and made by hand in Oliver’s workshop in Melbourne. The raw timber used for each spout is reclaimed timber that goes through a 12 step process by hand including denailing, sanding and waxing. This process makes sure each finished timber spout is unique in aesthetic but uniform in levels of exceptional craftsmanship and quality.

    I really like “BRASS SPOUTS & TIMBER TAPS BY WOOD MELBOURNE”, but can I find any of this in Belgium or Europe?
