John Lee II



John Lee's "Lillias" bespoke desk in Solid Oak featuring carved with textured surfaces finished with pattern detailing. 

"The title of the piece is in recognition of the Golden Fleece Award which I won in 2017. The award is an artistic fund established as a charitable bequest by the late Lillias Mitchell. The award has allowed me to spend more time experimenting with new concepts which will hopefully come to fruition over the coming years." John Lee

Sans Souci Atelier


Sans Souci Atelier's wonderful desk "Ofelia" is a doll house with room to play and work . A piece of furniture that proves functionality as a desk or play space, that also provides a cocoon of privacy for the user.

Yuko Kan





There is something fascinating about the carvings of Yuco Kan and for me it is that they sometimes look so awkward, so embarrassed, Yuko's imaginings have been exposed captured from her inner thoughts, carved and displayed and they somehow look uncomfortable in your gaze, they are wonderful.

Tiergarten



Sculptures are made from a European species of maple that grows near the workshop where the pieces are carved. Each animal figure is sculpted digitally then carved from this superb natural material by the skilled hands of a cabinet-maker. It takes several hours of painstaking work to bring each figure to life. TIERGARTEN is design duo; Katja Liebig and Fred Fréty who met at design school in Paris and wanted to work together creating a celebration of nature.
