Our work

The trees

Our furniture begins and ends with trees. We support sustainable forestry, and strive to promote understanding of the issues surrounding tropical timber forest management. For more information about the trees we use have a look at our tropical tree profiles.

Our designs

Our studio stands for sound principles of design. Unity, function, simplicity and scale are crucial elements to our collaborations with clients and our own creative process. Our designs mark moments in time and enrich the lives of those around them.

Our Craft

Our approach is derived from the Arts & Crafts ethos of quality hand-craftsmanship and appropriate use of materials. We balance traditional cabinet-making and our knowledge of new technologies to actively transform these materials into beautiful yet functional pieces of contemporary furniture.
