IT BEGAN WITH WOOD.
Working with wood came naturally to me. I discovered I could create what I imagined.
I am a New Zealand based furniture designer and manufacturer focused on creating contemporary solid wood furniture of an exceptional standard.
I had an affinity with timber from an early age. I found the unpredictable diversity from tree to tree and piece to piece fascinating. Working with wood is something I had never struggled to apply myself to and found I could create what I imagined with it much easier than any other medium I have tried.
In 2010 I set out under my own name. I began focussing on meeting the requirements of clients as simply and elegantly as possible. This work led me to refine my designing and manufacturing process and has brought about a catalogue of work that I produce repeatedly today.
My goal is always to make something that looks stunning. Working with wood gives me unbounded opportunities to do this. Each different species of timber brings about a different possibility which is why I am happy to produce any of my designs out of any wood available.
I am also very enthusiastic about collaborating with customers to create something new to suit a purpose or satisfy an aesthetic want.
