Tim told us a little more about his work:  ‘My work places emphasis on fitness for purpose, proportion, material and form – in that order. My furniture and products are handcrafted to last a lifetime and for that reason I use only natural materials – They have their own warmth and vitality, they bare the markings of age well, they look better in ten years time, not worse.’

We also asked Tim about his aspirations for the future:  ‘My plans are to continue to take on ambitious and exciting bespoke projects from my own workshop as well as collaborating with well known retailers and manufacturers.’

We are very much looking forward to seeing Tim’s work at New Designs One Year On, if you can’t wait that long then please visit his website here, or follow him on Instagram here.
