Hugh Altschwager is a sixth generation farming son from South Australia’s Limestone Coast whose upbringing saw him splitting his spare time between the ocean and the workshop. After studying Architecture and working in construction management, he merged his previous experiences and passions to form Inkster Maken in 2013.
Influenced by both the Australian environment and his Nordic heritage, Inkster Maken utilises locally sourced, unprocessed natural materials to create long lasting products with a timeless aesthetic. Inkster Maken’s lighting products are created using turned South Australian limestone and a variety of timbers. All products are designed and hand crafted by Hugh in Melbourne, Victoria.
