Making Waves in Milan

Our studio members Wilkinson & Rivera and Marc Wood Studio were showcasing new designs last week at Salone del Mobile, the Milan Furniture Fair.

Lighting designer, Marc Wood, debuted his new designs, The Zig Collection and The Deco Collection. His studio creates contemporary designs that champion world-class heritage craft including glass-blowers from the Czech Republic, echoing his heritage, his father is Czech and he spent much of his childhood between London and Prague.

Based at the workshop since 2017, Marc’s new collection is striking, sculptural pieces that dominate a room.

Wilkinson & Rivera are husband and wife duo Grant Wilkinson and Teresa Rivera. Their trademark ‘barley twist’ furniture has gone from strength to strength, hand crafted pieces, that are both contemporary and classic. Their new collection is called Baile and was made for SCP Ltd, featuring the Silla de Baile chair and the Mesa de Baile coffee table, both made from beautiful London Plane, using a method that ensures less waste material by cutting crossways twice. These new pieces are beautifully sculptural, standalone works of art.

Blackhorse Workshop is thrilled to be a home to these makers, and we look forward to following their creative journeys in design.
