He has worked alongside designers such as Konstantin Grcic, Matthew Hilton and Terence Woodgate to name just a few, helping to produce designs across all product areas including upholstery, lighting, furniture, textiles and accessories.In 2009 he presented director of SCP Sheridan Coakley with his design for Calvo, an elegant one legged side table with a tripod base.
