Tom’s work looks at the relationships between human comfort, design objects and the awkwardness of nature. His work places emphasis on how materiality can create form, often which often looks at how language can be used as inspiration for objects. His work sits comfortably between interiors and gallery in terms of context for display. His pieces are functional objects, which embody an original take on construction, this looks to create discussion on what is modern design. The work offers a unique visual aesthetic which looks to satisfy users through colour, material and finish.
