Rupert McKelvie is a UK-based designer who first considered design after attending a classical boat building course in Lyme Regis in Dorset. Both a trained maker and designer, he has mastered various skills allowing him the opportunity to create a series of beautiful furnishings using both his hands, his head, and modern technology.
The Flight explores the relationship between hardwood and silicone. Solid engineered timber is wrapped with two molded silicone bands that hold the planks together, locate them on the trestles and then act as a desk tidy. The bands are available in white, green and blue.
The Configure It shelving system allows for great flexibility in both use and appearance. Its modular characteristics are made possible by the relationship between the aluminium poles and the specially designed clip housed within the shelf.
The Soft Edges range has been launched with an American walnut coffee table that combines hardwood surfaces and legs with silicone trim and socks.
Its unique system of snap-down legs enables the Spider Light to be configured in a variety of ways, for a host of different applications and environments.
