After seven years of working in Germany, Stefan took a position in a small London based Firm. This Firm manufactured bespoke furniture and joinery items for high end developers and wealthy Individuals. This was Stefan’s introduction to the British high end Woodworking.

After years of serving under the German Furniture Maker, Stefan had gained a wealth of experience in the field of high end Manufacture. While then working in and around London, Stefan started to develop an interest in Furniture Design. He had a basic knowledge of CAD drawing which he learned durning his apprenticeship. This was a welcome foundation Stefan could build his future of Furniture Design on.
