I am a furniture maker trained in traditional techniques and focusing in the use of hand tools and solid wood. I make all of my pieces entirely at my workshop in Bermondsey, London.
I make chairs, tables and cabinets with a modern look. I’m inspired by the elegance and simplicity of mid century classics and by the natural forms I grew up surrounded by in Patagonia. I like the flowing curves caused by erosion and I incorporate them in my designs by shaping the wood.
I design comfortable pieces, to be used everyday: chairs with generous seats, soft edges, clean lines hiding structural complexities.
What I love the most about making furniture is that these are utilitarian objects with a sculptural potential, objects that people carefully choose to surround themselves with, choose to be part of their homes and lives, passing them through generations until they become loved possessions with stories and emotions attached to them.
In order for this to happen, two qualities are essential: a solid, long lasting construction and a design that ages well. I strive to achieve this in every piece I make.
I have shown my work at New Designers, New London Architecture, and at 100% Design as a nominee for the Wood Awards 2016. I took part or the Crafts Council’s Hothouse programme in 2017 and I’m always working on bespoke commissions and developing new designs.
