Splinter-Works-Vessel

Worried that you may have the same furniture as everyone else? Is your living room starting to resemble an Ikea catalogue? Well UK design company Splinter Works can change all that. The company was created in 2009 by Miles Hartwell and Matt Withington with the idea of making inspiring sculptural furniture and to ‘elevate the experience of everyday life’. Their strikingly original twists on familiar objects are still functional and are always of a high quality of finish.

Tipping-Point-kitchen

Working on a commission basis as well as producing a range of limited edition furniture their work is very exclusive. Commissions involve working closely with clients to create pieces that meet their needs and personality. As a result a lot of their work can be location specific, resembling art installations as much as they do furniture. A prime example of this is Vessel, a carbon fibre bath in the shape of a hammock. It takes the idea of luxurious and relaxing baths to extremes to produce a bath that looks nothing like anything else on the market. Working across a variety of materials nothing is off limits to Splinter, resulting in some extremely experimental and theatrical designs that become the focal point to any space. Their breath-taking Tipping Point open-plan kitchen design remains user friendly while also appearing to defy gravity, thanks to clever design and some sleight of hand. The knife edge on which it appears to rest beautifully echoing kitchen utensils.

Tipsy-Stool

They’re also happy to turn their hands to something smaller. The Tipsy stool also has fun with physics to create something that looks like it’s about to topple over, while the Stiletto table evokes the elegant lines of women’s shoes but creates something entirely new.
