Our valued designer/makers have been selected for their wonderful approach to elevating materials into objects that are as functional as they are stunning and built to last. Good design and aesthetics do not have to be compromised when having a sustainable approach to materials and production. A beautiful item is more likely to be cherished and passed on.
Ben’s passion is working with wood that tells a story, timber that has had a life, long before it’s carried through the workshop doors. He designs components around the timber that frame it and celebrate it. Folded and powder coated metal is his complementary material of choice. The clean geometry of the metal contrasts against the mottled surfaces of the reclaimed timbers.
Ben is an award-winning industrial designer who has worked for some of the design powerhouses in both the UK and Australia. His distinctive design language is a simple result of a selfish desire to create objects that he loves. He believes in quality and is proud of everything he makes.

Is a Helsinki born and bred designer. Ever curious and constantly learning and mastering new skills to implement in his work. In his mind design is a behavior, it's second-nature. Robin is at his core a craftsman and you can usually find him in his studio with a tool in his hand, working on another prototype.
His approach to design is tactile, simple and strives to tidy things up as elegantly as possible. He strives to take away and simplifying the unnecessary rather than adding new problems. His love for products and equipment that lasts is one of his major driving factors. Robin pushes himself to make his designs as timeless and sustainable as possible.
Whether it’s art direction, product design or graphic design, the core values of his creative process remains the same – dedication, quality consciousness and a commitment to deliver. Robin spends a lot time studying the problem or subject to end up with a more refined and better result.
