This contemporary companion set was recently completed for a client in East Sussex. The client’s brief was to design and produce a clean and simple set of tools which sat comfortably in the hand and complimented the space around it (as shown in photo).

The design idea came from a day of playing with the ideas of joining techniques like riveting and using dissimilar metals like copper or brass. The design could have included a twist from the handle to the base of the tool but, with the simplicity of the handle, I felt the companion set already had the character it needed

The transformation from turning one piece of 600mm x10mm square bar and using traditional forging techniques to produce a clean and practical product was a very enjoyable task as I feel was completed to a high quality.
