Other Works is a craft influenced design company whose work spans architecture, interior, furniture and object design.
Our ethos is beautiful utility. We understand the natural flow of spaces in order to create harmonious connections between objects, spaces and people.
From inception to delivery, every project is a chance for us to create unique experiences that reflect our clients' vision and best serve the users of the space.
We approach each project as a collaboration between the client, Other Works and the makers, using the brief as a springboard for research into creating designs that are stylistically and materially embedded within a place.
Harnessing our ability to work at a variety of different scales, we often use projects as a way to become a part of the making process by designing and making bespoke furniture ourselves.
