We are a surface and product design studio, offering fresh and exciting surface finishes for the interior design industry. Our surfaces are characterised by their colour, pattern and craftsmanship and are all hand cast and finished in our Nottingham

We collaborate with architects, interior designers, and creative agencies to deliver unique surface finishes for a wide range of projects. We work on a commission basis, developing clients' initial ideas into one of a kind final products. Clients can choose from our range of in-house designs, customised versions of these or work closely with us to develop completely personalised outcomes.

Olivia founded the studio in 2015 after completing a degree in textile design at Central Saint Martins. Olivia’s focus within the studio is on developing new surface finishes as well as working closely with clients to realise their ideas through colour and pattern experimentation.

Hannah joined the team in 2018. She completed a degree at Buckinghamshire New University in textiles and surface design and went on to gain 5 years of experience within the high-end decorative surface industry, creating marquetry. Hannah leads our production team within the studio, fine-tuning our casting techniques and ensuring projects are finished to the highest standard.
