Nicholas Pryke comes from a background of structural engineering and architecture and this is strongly reflected in his work and his confident use of materials other than wood – stainless steel, glass, copper etc., and in the architectural roots of his designs. He spends the majority of his time at the drawing board, working closely with a network of top class craftsmen.

After six years of fine art training at the Ruskin School, Oxford and the Royal Academy, David Savage has spent many years in various fields of design and has been creating furniture since 1978. His inspiration is derived from organic forms, mainly plants and humans, and his designs evolve from a close rapport with the client. He is unable to work in a vacuum and this relationship, he considers, is essential to produce his best work.
"I am inspired by a clients confidence and trust A piece is designed for that client you can see them sitting on it see them using it – that is what matters, their future enjoyment of it"
