Couchmate creates beautiful products to help you avoid spills. Each item is handmade from Hydrowood which is found under the glassy waters of Lake Pieman on Tasmania’s west coast It's here that an ancient forest was flooded and forgotten until the Pieman River was dammed to create hydroelectricity. Here, lost in the deep dark waters, ghostly trees still stand tall on the lake’s bottom. Lost, that is, until today. Thanks to an incredible vision, and even more incredible feats of modern engineering, Couchmate are undertaking one of Australia’s most ambitious forestry projects. They are creating history by delving deep below the waters of Lake Pieman to resurrect the precious timber below. This project will unlock supplies of speciality timbers so scarce they were thought gone forever. Species such as Tasmanian Myrtle, Sassafras and even the legendary Huon Pine will once again be available in quantity. This isn’t reclaimed wood, salvaged from some previous structure – already worked and full of bolts and nails. Nor is it a lonely log found years dead and scavenged from the leaf litter of a musty forest floor. This is real timber. Timber (re) discovered. Timber that master builders dream of working with, harvested in a way you wouldn’t believe and in quantities the world thought it would never see again.
