Design should enhance everyday life and I believe that not all design is necessary. But why should that be a negative? My aim as a designer is to produce pieces that have meaning and narrative. Pieces people don’t perhaps need, but want. 



Discovered is a range of wine glasses designed to enhance the flavour of red wine. Each is tailored to different types of wine based on intensity. The crystal cut design indicates the level at which wine should be filled, creating the optimum drinking experience.


Quinn is a high wing-back armchair with an exaggerated quilt detail, designed to embrace the user. Tall wings give privacy, whilst a slightly raised back provides the chair with an open and welcoming feel. Contrasting in both colour and texture, Quinn is an elegantly functional piece for any interior.
