Meet The Designer: Sebastian Cox

Posted on Jul 23, 2016 by

Part three of a five part editorial series in which we look at talented craftspeople who’s work celebrates the beauty of British wood. Combining traditional techniques and modern applications, they demonstrate a deep appreciation of the innate qualities of the material and a concern that it speaks for itself. The effect is, naturally, striking.

Award-winning designer-maker Sebastian Cox places the utmost importance on developing pieces that use locally sourced hardwood and age-old techniques, while also incorporating a contemporary aesthetic. His Oak and Hazel range was crafted entirely from sustainable British oak and traditionally coppiced hazel sourced from his family farm.
