TIMBER: Behind the idea

ALEX HAW. Designer and architect

Alex’s ingenious designs use natural materials to produce unexpectedly delightful spaces and experiences. His work ranges from furniture pieces, to buildings to art installations, including most recently, the Arboreal lighting centerpiece for Imogen Heap’s Reverb Festival.


Alex uses Wickes Scandinavian Timber, which is slow-grown for 80 – 120 years, which contributes to making the wood denser and more stable so it is less likely to split or twist in use.
