Our History

From one man to a growing world renowned company... how it all began.

Tom Raffield Designing Steam Bent Products

Tom Raffield was founded by an eager, ambitious graduate in 2008.

Inspired by his degree in 3D Sustainability and Design undertaken at Falmouth College of Arts, Tom sought to further his interest in the traditional, eco-friendly practice of steam bending by starting his own business.

Through hours of hard work, designing through making, experimenting and prototyping, Tom forged our origins, sensibility and the iconic curved aesthetic that we are still proud of today.

Over a decade later and still passionate about education, Tom has passed on his skills and taught his steam bending practice to our team of talented workshop makers.

Tom now spends most of his time designing products for the fast-growing Tom Raffield range and large-scale bespoke projects, but can also be found bringing innovative new designs to life in the workshop through the creative medium of hands-on making.
