We are a company of thinkers, writers, designers & makers working together to create beautiful & useful things.
We are based in a former pen factory in east London, and while our studio is no longer a factory, we are proud to be the sort of designers who are fully involved in making - in sourcing materials, and working closely with craftspeople, onsite and beyond.
We have always modelled our approach on the values of the Arts and Crafts movement: its emphasis on natural rhythms and materials, and the goal of fusing utility and beauty.
That includes making things sustainably: environmental and societal reform is key to our philosophy. At the root of any sustainable approach is to make things with a long life and timeless quality. Through sticking to these principles we are now, thanks to our many global partners, spreading them far and wide.
Here was founded in 2005, and is run by three partners, Kate Marlow, Tess Wicksteed and Mark Paton. As a collaborative studio of 40 thinkers, writers, designers and makers, we partner with our clients to develop projects from the initial idea through to the ultimate experience.
