The Lily Lantern Build Process
Boutiques workshops might be a rare sight to see in Hong Kong, but it is exactly where we handcraft our creations, in a little studio amongst the skyscrapers.
Each Lily Lantern is created with a combination of computer-controlled machining and good old handcraft. This gives us incredible accuracy and the finishing touches of a master craftsman. All with the goal of delivering a high-quality product you can’t find anywhere else.
Each wooden base of the Lantern is machined out of a solid block of Walnut or Ash. We use CNC to machine the outer profile and the intricate inner fixtures, then re-clamp it to machine the side holes for the handles. Each one is then carefully sanded down by hand through three stages.
Custom Brass Parts
We add the final touch by hand-stamping our logo to mark our handy work.
This is where our electrical team poured their heart and soul into for the past year. To develop our very own proprietary controller unit. We carefully hook this up with all the other electronics parts, that make up the brain of the Lily Lantern, bringing it to the forefront of the technological age.
After one and half years of development by our team; over 12 hours in the built process for each piece, and an incalculable amount of blood, sweat and tears, this is what we have created.
