Michael’s passion for design is driven by the attitude that in nature everything is unique, so creating a piece of furniture is a similar process.
To create; is to produce an object that has never existed before.
When asked where his designs were conceived, the answer is predominantly “look around you, nature has the solution for everything”.
He finds if you want a pleasing form, it literally confronts you every day in your natural surrounds.
With a vast and diverse background to draw on for design, his engineering study provide a solid knowledge base for sound construction possibilities, this blended with a passion for everything natural, it is understandable that there is a strong influence towards an organic style in his furniture.
Michael’s philosophy is to create pieces with a tactile element that invites the viewer to experience the timber and it’s beauty.
