HOW WOULD YOU DE­SCRIBE YOUR STU­DIO? Messy, sunny, at ca­pac­ity. Very cen­tral, I can ride my bike to most de­sign events. I’m a five-minute ride to Tait and a 10-minute ride to Cult, that I work closely with. WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR WORKSPACE? It is very con­ve­nient. I own a cor­ner ter­race, live up­stairs and my stu­dio is on street level. Not a long trip to work but in­de­pen­dent from home for my headspace. Good cof­fee and food a few doors up. The build­ing is her­itage listed, which is a mock­ery given how di­lap­i­dated it was when I bought it. I have since given it a makeover. It was built in 1885 so it has some his­tory. I have heard it was many dif­fer­ent things: up­hol­stery shop, del­i­catessen, it had been on fire ... When I bought it, it had a num­ber of tiny rooms so you can guess what may have been tak­ing place. WHAT AP­PEALED TO YOU ABOUT THE SPACE? It has a high ceil­ing, big win­dows look­ing on the street wel­com­ing the sun. I can bring my dog Frank to work. WHAT ARE YOUR OF­FICE ES­SEN­TIALS? 2B pen­cil and pa­per. Good mu­sic. Cof­fee ma­chine. Frank. FAVOURITE PIECES YOU HAVE PICKED UP ON YOUR TRAV­ELS? A ‘Ulisse’ three-legged fold­ing stool de­signed by Ivan Loss and made by San­dri­gar­den. I picked it up cheaply in a sec­ond­hand shop in Mi­lan. I brought it back as hand lug­gage folded flat. I use it to have my lunch in the sun on the foot­path. DE­SCRIBE A TYP­I­CAL DAY? Cof­fee, emails, meet­ings, fac­tory visit, hope­fully some pen to pa­per de­sign­ing. A DREAM DESK ITEM YOU WOULD BUY RIGHT NOW? A ma­chine to give me more space and clean up after me. A bit of AC wouldn’t go astray too. IF YOUR STU­DIO WERE LO­CATED ANY­WHERE ELSE, WHERE WOULD THAT BE? I re­ally love my stu­dio, it would be nice if it was a tad big­ger though. If it could be any­where – north fac­ing, over­look­ing the ocean – I prob­a­bly wouldn’t get much work done. adam­
