“He designs stuff, you know, this and that...”


Charlie Boyden is a young British designer, artist and maker working with wood and other rudimentary materials. His designs often involve manipulating a process or material, taking ideas from the combination of material and object scenarios noticed around town. These feed into the form, texture and shape of his work. In 2021 he set up his own studio-workshop based in East London, where he prototypes and makes many objects from homeware to furniture, lighting, sculpture and indoor structures.
