About me.

Furniture Design Graduate

Design fascinates me. I love the problem solving nature of design. This is leading me to think about a future in commercial and contract furniture design. Designing furniture to meet the vast and varied demands of the general public is a challenge that excites me. Post this pandemic, what will furniture even look like? And perhaps more importantly, who will need it most?

Studying Furniture Design and Make BA (Hons) at Rycotewood has helped me gain a better understanding of the practical elements of furniture design, while pushing me to become a more confident designer through a hands on making experience in the workshop. 

When designing I keep the following questions in the forefront of my mind: Is it sustainable? Does it make sense? What is the purpose? Is it needed?
