Tim Forrester is one of Britain's most innovative young designers. He achieved great success during a period spent working in Milan & has now returned to the UK to continue designing & manufacturing his high quality, inspirational and versatile furniture ranges.

The U.K based designer-maker produces simple yet effective products that are beautiful as well as multi-functional - they demand to be touched, as well as used & admired. He addresses everyday problems & designs pieces that help to overcome them. Fun and easy to use, Tim's pieces demonstrate that he pays great attention to the relationship between an object, its environment & its end user.

He works on one-off & short-run commissions & thus ensures that all products are made to the highest possible standards. He personally selects materials and components & aims, where possible, to use source from within the UK.

Tim's work has featured widely in leading design magazines including idFX, Gioia Casa & Brava Casa, & he has exhibited at SaloneSatellite, Abitare il Tempo and Euroluce.

Judd comprises of a series of multifunctional objects. They don't have an obvious product definition & so invite the user to make their own interpretation. Is it a light, a table, a storage unit, a shelf, or simply a piece of art? Judd combines simple design with colour, boldness & beauty.

In December 2005 his Luna furniture range was a finalist in the BIDA Awards 2005 for Furniture Product of the Year.  Luna is a furniture range that comprises of 12 different products produced from a single elliptical form.
