I am currently heading a modelshop at Glenn Howells Architects where we make architectural models showcasing GHA designs. I've been in the making industry for 15+ years and having dipped in and out of designing and making products, homewares and furniture in the past however, I recently decided to put a little more of a push and shove into the latter.
I decided to design and make a furniture line with an ode to midcentury modern 'danish',yet for it to be accessible to the young professional. It has been dubbed as 'furniture for a young family home' and will consist of an extendable table, 4 dining chairs and 2 stools.
So far I have designed, made and manufactured the dining chair. STEAMhouse played a big part in this as I took my designs, refined, prototyped and manufactured it with their help. I'm now working on the table, which I am sure STEAMhouse will play a big part again.
I will be exhibiting and showcasing the complete furniture line at London Design Fair in September over the weekend of 19th-22nd at the Truman Brewery in East London.
