One to watch – Hand & Eye Studio

One to Watch

Set up by Tom Housden in 2011, Hand & Eye design studio is a lighting company with a difference. A practicing architect, Housden felt that design was too hands-off and remote from the process of manufacturing, so he went back to basics, setting up a small studio and workshop, where projects are developed from drawing stage right through to the making and manufacturing process. The results speak for themselves; terracotta lamps with vibrant coloured fl exes, fully glazed or half glazed, allowing for a beautiful contrast in texture and colour, gooseberry shaped lamps with ridges and circular shallow bowl lights made of wood. Being so closely involved with the process allows Housden to make subtle judgements in shape, space, texture and colour that could otherwise be missed, while allowing for experimentation and accidental finds.  It’s this that underpins Hand & Eye’s fundamental philosophy.
