This is the piece that started it all, and it remains part of our catalogue. We’ve always approached our designs with a narrative, combined with process and materialit­y. At the time, laser technology was reasonably new, expensive and not readily available. It certainly wasn’t being used for designing furniture. We wanted to use it in a feminine and decorative way, where you forget about the material and only see the delicate lace of the structure. The Desert Rose motif was developed with Claire Clarke. We collaborat­e with other designers who are specialist­s in their field – not only do they inspire us, they also bring a unique dynamic to our work.
