Commission: Exhibition display shelving for Part Seen, Part Imagined. Studio Pavilion 2019

Designed with Daniel Main of Glasgow Tool Library for group exhibition at Studio Pavilion. Modular Ash shelving units with Douglas Fir shelves.

Commission: Dining Room Cabinets, Coffee table and Bench. 2019

Ian and Catherine were looking for a fitted display and storage space for their open plan dining space. We came up with this Birch plywood and Formica design in keeping with the Modernist property and furniture collection. We then made a matching coffee table and bench for the entrance hallway from Ash, Birch plywood and Marmoleum.

Commission: Civic House Kitchen, Civic House, Glasgow 2019

Designed with Hannah and Jack Paton and Civic House, we wanted to create a large multi purpose kitchen that was visually appealing. The space runs as a canteen and catering prep kitchen during the week and as a dry hire for events. It is an open kitchen and a focal point for the main events space in Civic House whilst also working very hard as a commercial kitchen. We borrowed materials often used in commercial kitchens such as stainless steel and utilised them in a bespoke way to achieve the functionality and look that the kitchen required.

Commission: Thank You Very Much, David Dale Gallery & Studios, Glasgow, 2017

Out door furniture and tableware designed and made in collaboration with Florence Dywer. For this project we were required to produce seating and tableware suitable for an outdoor event. Hand bent steel rod furniture is adorned with repurposed materials such as woven place mats, corrugated plastic packaging and dyed wool blankets.

Commission: Free Market, Market Gallery, Glasgow, 2017

The installation consists of 6 uncut scaffolding boards supported by various wooden boxes and containers. This simple construction makes the benches easy to assemble, rearrange and modify, much like a market stall and useful to a community where permanent access to phycial space is hard to come by.

In a response to the theme of resource scarcity, the majority of the work is made from left over material. Additionally, each bench can be broken down into components which serve other suposes such as storage and display.
