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.
