Reiko Kaneko Ltd is a company designing fine bone china in elegant, functional shapes; glassware and terracotta that is beautifully thin and light; and pure white china dipped in rich glazes to produce unique studio pieces. It’s been an interesting journey so far.
After studying design at Central Saint Martins, Reiko started out designing a range of products which she had made around the world but it was the joy of working with ceramicists in The Potteries, and tapping into over two centuries of knowledge in fine bone china production that led her to concentrate on ceramics.
Reiko spent her childhood in Japan and still makes frequent visits. Japan has not only been an inspiration for the elegant simplicity to which she strives, but the key to her appreciation of craft and craftsmanship. Reiko has collaborated with makers in different materials both in England and in Japan. In addition to design work, the company specialises in ceramic glazing and experiments in the studio with new reactive glazes.
Bespoke furniture, grown, designed and made in London.
It is increasingly hard to discern the connection between the products we buy and how and where they are made. Robert Brain makes modern British furniture using timber from London trees, designed and built in his London workshop.
Sourcing material locally means Robert can trace a piece back to the street or park where the tree stood. This gives his work distinctive provenance, and instills it with a narrative of the material’s journey.
Understanding the material’s origin helps to reveal its connection with the process and the finished piece, allowing clients to add deeper interest to their interiors with furniture with a compelling story.
Combining his background as a Philosophy graduate with over a decade’s experience in the luxury interiors market, Robert brings a meticulous and thoughtful approach to the design and construction of each piece.
