Tim Webber is just 24 years old but he’s already established his own business, Tim Webber Design, in New Zealand. He’s also already created a series of furniture and decor from sideboards to tables to lighting. When I was 24, I think my head was still stuck in the sand.

His WM Series, which stands for “wood/metal”, is a collection of 10 items that explore the relationship between these two commonly-used materials. The idea that wood=warm and metal=cold is considered, but even taking it a step further, the metal parts being painted in bright colors to enhance the contrast between the two.

Tim currently has seven stockists in New Zealand and an Australian distributor. Let’s hope he can make some connections to bring his products elsewhere in the world.
