THE VERKSTAD STORY
Based in my workshop in Hackney Wick, London, I specialise in making lighting, homewares, and accessories from reclaimed pallet wood and recycled copper pipe - transforming waste material into beautiful, unique pieces for the home. It is important to me that everything I produce is of the highest quality and will stand the test of time.
The idea started with a desire to make products with a story. It began with a pallet coffee table for my flat and then through research and experimentation I created my signature product; the block lamp.
My inspiration comes from the industrial surroundings of Hackney Wick, contrasted with the soft tones and tactile materials of Scandinavia. These beautifully crafted homewares fit in well in any surrounding, from stylish new build apartments, to sensitively restored Victorian end-of-terraces.
