Tom grew up in the extreme wilderness, tranquillity and natural beauty of Exmoor. This environment stimulated his imagination and gave him the freedom to be adventurous with his designs.
Tom’s fascination with steam bending began whilst studying at Falmouth College of Arts and the vision for many of Tom’s designs came from his primary interest in structural materials, wood and its changeable states. Years of research and experimentation allowed Tom to develop a new steaming method to build his designs.
Tom was Co-Founder of the award winning collective design company Sixixis, recognised for unique aesthetic, forward thinking designs.
Now through Tom’s own company he is continuing to create some of the most spectacular ecologically sound, innovative furniture and lighting products which are based on beauty and integrity.
