Wavy Wooden House
Back in 2008, the journey to create the infamous Grand Designs ‘wavy wooden house’ began. Co-founders, Tom and
Danielle, set out to create a unique build in South Cornwall that would take steam bending to new heights.
Channelling the essence of the iconic Tom Raffield ethos and design aesthetic, they embarked on a monumental project
that would prove to be very challenging, pushing the boundaries of contemporary architecture to their limits, all
whilst every step of the journey was captured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs in late 2016.
Our lighting designs
have become more than just creations; they are expressions of our connection to nature's forms. Drawing inspiration
from the undulating landscapes of Cornwall, each lighting piece we craft is an artwork that brings the outdoors into
interiors. The interplay of light and shadow in our lighting designs creates an ambiance that is both captivating
and soothing, transforming any room into a sanctuary of beauty and serenity.
Beyond lighting, our homeware creations encapsulate our timeless passion of blending functionality with artistic
design. From furniture to home
accessories, each piece is a harmonious marriage of aesthetics and functionality. Each wooden
designs not only serve practical needs but also spark awe, becoming focal points in any home.

Range. Now boasting a wide range of sustainable planters that hold flourishing greenery,
homegrown herbs, or even used as statement storage, our talented team handcraft a unique display of indoor planters.
At the core of our achievements lies a team united by passion, creativity, and a shared vision. Over the years, our
exciting growth has been more than just in numbers; it's been a growth of ideas, collaborations, and friendships. We
are honoured to have worked alongside an array of renowned brands to create content that fuels innovation.

The striking courtyard-esque space showcased our ground-breaking design process which combines their traditional
steam bending technique with complex parametric modelling to create the eye-catching biomorphic architecture and
planters. Central to the design, these organic 3D oak forms are functional pieces of art that sit amongst the
