design and production expertise
Studio Trevelyan has acted as a consultant for leading galleries and artists to assist them in the design, production development and manufacture of limited edition design pieces and artworks. Working on either a specific stage of the process or following an entire project through from start to finish, we can combine our expertise with the manufacturing capabilities of the production companies we work with to deliver the finished work.
For the majority of projects we are involved at every stage of the design process, from initial conceptual work, through to design development and ultimately production management, working closely with the manufacturer(s) to ensure that the initial design concept is fully realised. While we specialise and the field of limited edition and sculptural furniture and lighting, our work has expended to cover both production furniture pieces and fine art works including large public commissions.
The studio considers model-making, physical testing and prototyping to be integral aspects of its design process, and to that end has in-house model-making and 3D printing facilities. For almost every project the studio works on, physical models are produced either to test aspects of the design, or to act as presentation aides for the client. We work extensively with material samples, and strongly encourage testing and experimentation to develop a unique final output.
production development and management
With twelve years experience of the design and production of furniture, lighting and artworks, and a background in engineering and materials science, we are able to offer expertise and oversight of the whole production process, specialising in unique or challenging projects.
