Tim Summers is an independent London based Designer and Maker of furniture and products. Driven by an interest in the exploration of often overlooked, industrial materials and manufacturing processes, he works between commission based work, production pieces for the mass market and batch production of self initiated projects.
His approach to the design process is through hands on making encouraging the development of ideas through experimentation and in the different ways that materials and processes can be manipulated.
Although he has an affinity to working with wood he is reluctant to commit to any one material, instead he prefers to seek out the natural qualities of a material and use in an uncomplicated and honest manner. With every project there is new understanding. With a belief in craftsmanship and simplicity he strives to create well considered, functional objects for everyday life.
