Edward Johnson


This desk is made from fumed and brown oak. The top of the desk starts with a small semi-circular fumed oak centre, that flows seamlessly from the ‘core’ radiating outwards and down both sides of the feature aerofoil-shaped legs, reminiscent of fin keels of a boat.


Edward Johnson established his business in 2009 after gaining invaluable experience working in the furniture design and manufacturing industry. He graduated in 2007 from Buckinghamshire Chilterns University with a first-class honours degree. Edward has since gone on to develop a deep understanding for his craft and now produces museum quality furniture for private and commercial clients.


Edward Johnson’s work is the product of a deep understanding of his chosen materials and his desire to explore its many possibilities. His creative approach allows him to think outside of the box and push the boundaries of his materials to the limit, primarily, although not exclusively, wood. It demands that he stays true to traditional methods, where he has worked tirelessly to hone his craftsmanship, specialist skills and technical knowledge – whilst striving to do so with an open mind and ambitious outlook.
