My designs mainly focus to harmonise into today's interior spaces. I always conceptualise from a different perspective, to achieve my belief in design. To fuel my ideation, I gather new innovations through visiting arbitrary places. I strive to always understand my clients’ needs, create designs that satisfy their every requirement, acknowledge the needs to bring out clients’ identity and finally produce an outcome that is tailored to the client. I always refine my intention towards a design until it reaches my utmost satisfaction. My products are high-quality furniture by selecting the best material possible, ultimately demonstrating the best of the best.
STELLA is a prominent and sleek coffee table, which features a stainless steel base in a unique design that is a real eye-catcher. The table top is made out of polished toughened glass, on which you can place your drinks, vases, fruit bowls or ornaments. This coffee table can also be used as a side table, a couch table, a living room table, etc. This design was inspired from the noun “connection”, connecting between materials, steel and glass, and connecting between human and design. STELLA is developed from the form of a constellation. The design can be altered based on the constellations chosen. The base of the table is then designed according to the constellation selected by the customer. Through this design method, it allows users to admire their desired coffee table through different angles. With the help of laser cutting technology, the complex designs can be created accurately with a jig which holds the arrangement together before everything is welded together. Its simplistic design allows it to integrate itself into today’s interior spaces.
Daffodil, a transformable and stylish armchair that is effortlessly interchangeable. Whether it is an armchair, or an armchair that surrounds its user providing the personal space needed. Daffodil is a daffodil yellow industrial fabric-based armchair, hence the name Daffodil. The durable industrial fabric is contrasted with cambro cream leather for the armrests, so overall gives a soft but long-lasting quality. The frame which is optional, can be made from either stainless steel squared-tubes or timber, whilst leather cord is used to fill the space between the frame and the armchair itself. Daffodil was designed to solve the lack of personal seating in a university library in Nottingham. The thought was that having a seat that offers its users personal space, allowing them comfort despite being surrounded by other people. This should encourage students to visit the library even when alone. The versatility of the design creates a higher demand in the market, allowing it to be more than just an armchair that gives personal space. Therefore, the decision was made to develop the idea through mass production and to enhance its possibilities from a just a design into an actuality.
