I discovered my passion for designing furniture when working on my own home 15 years ago.

At the time I had a successful job in advertising and a secure career, however this new and exciting creative avenue was calling me.

I believe that good design should be original, convey a sense of nature, and hold a timeless appeal. Details are so important. Geometry, scale, materials and technology all play an important role in a designer’s toolbox.

I have been told my furniture is eclectic and I would be happy to agree. We use a combination of contemporary technology and textures, alongside traditional, and often aged materials. A cabinet might be crafted from crumpled metal and offset against smooth walnut wood. Over time, perhaps the wood might change and then suddenly the piece has another story to tell. The same goes for leather - the more you use it, the more you can see traces of its use. That's what we love in our studio; to observe the natural wear and the ability for our pieces to share their history.

We have a free-spirited approach and take inspiration from both the man-made and natural world. I love to combine traditional materials like wood, bronze and leather with more modern materials, such as polished stainless steel. Construction sites, architectural cladding, rocks and bamboo have all influenced pieces in our collection. In other words, expect the unexpected!

I've adopted a free-spirited approach and take inspiration from both the man-made and natural world. At our studio, we are driven by originality and a timeless appeal, the unseen details hold great importance.

Never one to follow the rules, he actively defies following the footsteps of historic masters too closely.
