MAKARLU Coast was inspired by the natural beauty of where land and ocean come together.
From water gently lapping at the shore, soaking into sun-kissed sand—to sheer cliff faces, rocky, rugged, and windswept—our planet has approximately 620,000 kilometres (372,000 miles) of coastline. Over one-third of people live within 100 km (60 miles) of an oceanic coast.
So much coast—so varied, yet so much the same—in that it holds meaning for so many.
Like the coast itself, MAKARLU Coast is both dynamic and beautiful. It is instinctual to be drawn to play with Coast, and also natural for Coast to be simply admired.
Comprised of our unique Nesting Domes on Timber Bases—the distinctive sizes, surface contours and textures of Coast are made for your muscles, fascia, and skin.
Designed for Movement
Whether for general exercise, self-massage, specific rehabilitation goals, or training of highly conditioned performers and athletes, the all-in-one functionality of MAKARLU Coast and Lotus (featured below) will release, relax, stretch, strengthen, and move your body—from head to feet and anywhere in between.
To get moving—use any of the 8 components individually, or get creative and combine them in countless configurations.
The innovative Nesting Domes design of Coast and Lotus (below) lets you vary the firmness of the large and medium domes. Simply add or remove inner domes to suit.
This variable firmness is ideal for accommodating individual preferences, or to use on different areas of the body.
Not only for the floor!
Inbuilt magnets make MAKARLU Coast and Lotus (below) game changers for relieving hard-to-reach niggles, knots, and tight spots in the back, neck, shoulders, hips, etc. The ability for the domes to be used vertically and ‘hands-free’ means that self-massage, muscle release, and gentle mobilisation of stiff joints is that much easier.
Whether in hand, under foot, or on display—there's nothing quite like the look and feel of real timber.
MAKARLU Coast Timber Bases are crafted from European Ash and East Asian Bamboo.

They are so versatile, adaptable and provide incredible feedback to the body. What I love most about them is how they create a fun, playful and feel-good environment where you learn so much about how your body moves and responds to different sensations & movement patterns.
