Features

Where form meets function.

Lotus was designed with a focus on versatility and elegance.

MAKARLU Lotus is a highly versatile health, exercise and self-care product (prop, tool, device, aid, equipment) made up of several components. Lotus can help to improve how you move and feel by promoting movement in different ways. It’s used to facilitate:

    • balance (both static and dynamic)
    • flexibility (muscle, joint and whole body)
    • strength (postural strength, core strength, functional strength)
    • mobility (joint and whole body)
    • joint range of motion
    • proprioception
    • tactile stimulation and challenges
    • massage of soft tissue (including muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other connective tissue such as fascia)
    • myofascial (muscle and fascia) release
    • muscle recovery (including delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS))
    • improved posture and postural awareness
    • relaxation
    • circulation
    • pain relief

Like a Matryoshka doll, the 3 Nesting Domes and Rocker Base of MAKARLU Lotus fit snugly together. The components can be used individually, or in combination with each other in countless configurations.

Large dome – Diameter 12cm (4.7″) – Blossum covered with nodules in the form of petals

The distinctive sizes, textures and contours of each component of MAKARLU Lotus provide unique tactile input, fascial grip, and treatment focus. The all-in-one versatility means that Lotus is suitable for the whole body – from head to feet and anywhere in between.

Versatile and Adaptable

Use Lotus in different ‘configurations’ for a wide range of ‘applications’.

Compact and Portable

Take Lotus with you wherever you go, whether to the studio or gym, work or home, or while travelling.

The 3 Nesting Domes design feature lets you vary the firmness of your MAKARLU Lotus set, by adding or removing inner domes.

The range of firmnesses is helpful for accommodating individual needs, or to use on different areas of the body.

MAKARLU Lotus comes with an embroidered drawstring carry bag. Our bags are made from heavyweight black canvas and features French seams, double drawstrings, and two inner pockets. There’s a pocket for each Lotus, or travel with a single set and use the other pocket for your possessions.

Our Lotus bags were inspired by the elegant simplicity of ‘kinchaku’, a traditional Japanese drawstring carry bag or pouch. Kinchaku is a small bag worn like a purse or handbag, typically used for carrying around personal possessions like money, lucky charms, medicines and cosmetics.

Moves

How do you MAKARLU?

With the interplay of different sizes, contours, and degrees of firmness, the potential applications for Lotus are seemingly endless. From myofascial release, massage, and movement, through to sensory play, strengthening, and stability  challenges — there is a lot you can do with MAKARLU.

Timbers

Where exceptional materials underpin timeless design.

Our Rocker Bases are crafted from a selection of beautiful real timbers.

Australian Spotted Gum

Known for its striking appearance and a high degree of natural durability and strength, our sustainably-sourced Spotted Gum is one of Australia’s premium hardwoods. Architects and designers value Spotted Gum timber for its grain structure, attractive markings and vibrant colour palette. It’s robust, and is often used to make fine furniture, polo sticks, baseball bats and boats. 

The colour of its heartwood can range from light brown through to dark red-brown hues. Like fingerprints and snowflakes, no two Spotted Gum rocker bases are identical. Despite the name, products made from Spotted Gum aren’t covered in spots, the timber earned its name because the smooth greyish-white bark of the corymbia maculata (Spotted Gum) tree is shed in flakes, leaving conspicuous spots.

American Walnut

The beautiful grain patterns, rich brown colours, and great workability of American Walnut places this timber in a class of its own for architects, designers and woodworking professionals. It’s a popular choice for use in furniture, joinery and other fine woodworking, so it was only natural for Makarlu to include American Walnut in the range.

American Walnut is native to the eastern regions of North America. The colour of its heartwood ranges from a golden to a rich chocolate brown colour, sometimes with narrow streaks of a darker purplish-brown. American Walnut is a fine and generally straight-grained timber, although often it has an attractive wavy or curly grain, giving it a highly decorative figure.

European Ash

European Ash is an important timber in Scandinavian furniture and interior design, and is now bringing its beautiful grain and light tones to the Makarlu range.  European Ash varies from white through to pale brown, making it an attractive option for use in chairs, dining tables, joinery, architectural features and hardwood flooring. In the past this versatile timber was even used in boat and plane building, mainly due to being a strong yet relatively lightweight hardwood.

European Ash is the European equivalent to White Ash of North America, with both woods being light coloured to nearly white, and generally straight-grained with a uniform texture.

East Asian Bamboo

Bamboo holds deep-rooted cultural significance in East Asia, in no small part thanks to its characteristic strength, versatility, rapid growth, and natural regeneration. Musical instruments, furniture, fishing rods, buildings, bridges, textiles and even weapons are some of the traditional and contemporary applications of this majestic plant.

Its high strength-to-weight ratio, sustainable qualities and light earthy colours make East Asian Bamboo a solid option as a Makarlu rocker base.

Bamboo justifiably earns its reputation amongst designers as a sustainable resource because it is amongst the fastest-growing plants in the world. In suitable conditions, bamboo has been known to grow at a rate of one metre per day!

Colours

Where art meets sustainable health. 

Lotus comes in a range of brilliant colours. 

Blue

Inspired by the blue lotus flower, the vivid tones of Blue will add to the atmosphere of any environment. It’s striking, yet soothing.

Magenta 

Magenta provides a bright splash of colour reminiscent of the pink lotus blossom. It’s vibrant and not at all subtle. 

Midnight Black

The neutral, dark shades of Midnight Black will compliment all settings. It’s contemporary and classic style all at once.
