Featured Designer: Tinsel & Sawdust

Written by:

Tinsel & Sawdust is an evolving collective working on good design and fabrication. Katrina Tompkins opened the studio in March 2010 and keeps the door open. They work at creating furniture, art and spaces using sustainable methods and materials. Check out their work, with images of their process (including sand-molding glass table tops!) here.

One of my favourites: a quick build with shop finds

For Edmond Place, Katrina is collaborating with Stephanie Lund and Melissa Amarelo to produce a set of 6 dining chairs for the amenity spaces. Thanks Tinsel & Sawdust!
