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

SHOP / INFOCV










British Designer experimenting in light, object and furniture.

Producing solutions (mostly) in three dimensions:  Set, Window, Interaction, Exhibition, and Concept Design. Sculpture, Furniture, Object Experiments, and Product Development.        Most of my work has a visible backbone of upcycling/repurposing objects. –– I see this as ‘The marrying of strange objects, assigning new functions to their pre-determined forms’.

“Fond of process, Charlie breaks things, makes things and fixes things, to explore objects, experiences and materials. His work verges on the edge of sculpture, design and fine art but overall aims to challenge the function of objects in our everyday lives”
