I am a designer-maker trained in cabinetry before university, which is a big driver behind my designs and goals. When I design, I enjoy creating functional, simple products. I intend to carry on both designing and making side by side.

Radiance is a side table to help create a relaxing atmosphere after a long day or week. It is designed to illuminate the room without being intrusive on your cosy evening. LEDs are built into the table with natural, cool, and warm white light to choose from, so you can control your atmosphere. Also, the LEDs are dimmable, so you can settle into the weekend. The steam-bent frame is also an intriguing feature for the day. The table is made from ash, which has been bent and shaped to create a functioning table that holds itself together. The joints are designed to hold the bends in place so that in 20 years you will have the same table you left with. The beauty of this product is the second life breathed back into the wood to allow it to create these new shapes it wasn't allowed to before.
