The Designer


Creative Director, Richard Hooper, brings a unique blend of his previous experience of aerospace mechanical engineering with his understanding and knowledge of antique furniture restoration and traditional upholstery. The exacting standards required of the aviation world, a technical perspective and craftsmanship are evident in his designs; designs which are strongly influenced by the coastal and maritime environment around him.

‘I like to allow the natural beauty of materials to shine through. I am not concerned with ornament or frivolity, but rather focus on well-engineered pieces which harmonise the aesthetic with function’.
