"Sustainable design, is it possible and what would it look like?" I started this series of chairs and tables over 30 years ago when it was obvious that we would need to take a radical look at the way we live, to take account of the finite nature of the planet. Initially I was more interested in a platform to explore a fresh visual language, creativity thrives on a crisis.

Now climate change is very much for real, and we have done depressingly little to alleviate the inevitable outcome, (we have actually become far more profligate and probably less satisfied) I still feel that an alternative future is possible and potentially much more fun. On the principal that an interesting answer is most likely to come from an interesting question, I designed this furniture with sustainability high on the agenda. Really good design makes the challenges of tomorrow both feasible and exciting.
