Inside the Wood ShopArticle
In many ways, our Wood Shop is like any other: long work benches, the latest machinery, well-stocked orderly tool cupboards and our sixteen-strong team applying the very best traditional joinery skills. What makes our Wood Shop different is the output. Traditional skills? Yes. Traditional projects? No.
Our wood shop team are an adaptable lot, turning their skills to the kind of variety rarely seen in other companies. Recently, they’ve worked on bespoke structures for a large event on the beach in Cannes; 500 roof panels for an architect-designed pavilion, each one with a different geometry; a large, high-end exhibition at the Design Museum and a bespoke sculpture for an artist exhibiting at the Venice Biennale. Their work veers from large volume production runs to bespoke one-offs.
However unusual the making, the skills remain the same and our Wood Shop deliver sharp, clever joinery. They’re a versatile, agile team, often working alongside our many other departments on multi-disciplinary projects seen across the world.
