French composite and materials specialist, Alex, and New Zealand human rights lawyer, Monique, are the heart and soul behind Wānaka’s Revology — concept store and tea house, centred around conscious living.

It all began with Alex’s mission to transform the composite industry using natural, sustainable flax fibres. While the journey started with a simple iPhone case, he soon shifted his focus to everyday objects that would stand the test of time: an award-winning chair, a bike and a baby box.

In 2014, Alex and Monique joined forces to evolve the studio into a sustainable, circular design brand with a focus on ethically made products. You’ll find their brick-and-mortar, Revology, tucked inside The Precinct, one of Wānaka’s most beautiful shopping areas. Here they offer a curated selection of ethical, sustainable goods from makers that share their ethos, and their studio’s original designs, which are meant to last, evolve, and be repaired. 

While meandering through the inviting and industrial space, you’ll come across beautifully made lifetime objects — a metal lunchbox, reusable bags and woven baskets, for instance — as well as vintage goods brought over from Alex’s home country of France.

In the same space, you’ll be invited to relax and unwind with a cup of tea from the on-site Tea House, as Alex and Monique share a passion for the cosy beverage. The flavourful teas feature herbs sourced right here in Aotearoa New Zealand. Choose a tea to sample before purchasing a 50-gram jar to take home, and bring the jar back for a refill when empty. It’s clear that this Concept Store and Tea House prioritise circular consumption in more ways than one.

We love to sit down. But it wasn’t until we plonked ourselves on a Wilson & Dorset Shaggy Bean Bag and lounged on their sheepskin rugs that we realised just how good putting one’s feet up could be. What a revelation.
