Bridging The Gap

10.04.17

Touch Design Group’s state-of-the-art workshops combine a unique blend of both traditional and modern methods of furniture making. Whilst a highly skilled team of cabinet makers are trained in hand cabinetry, machine work, carving, vacuum forming, veneering and wood turning, significant investment in technology has enabled the company to take on increasingly ambitious projects.

One of the only independent designer-makers to have its own large-scale computer-controlled woodcutting equipment – Touch has seen its project portfolio grow steadily to include multimillion-pound properties, Michelin-starred restaurants and luxury hotels. The team’s commitment to sourcing new materials and design inspiration from around the world enables clients to benefit from an exciting blend of creative innovation and aesthetic ambition, all based on the solid foundation of quality craftsmanship.

Touch Design David Crosby, co-founder and Director at Touch Design Group, explains:

“We’re basically bridging the gap between the old world of craftsmanship and cabinetmaking, and very modern, design-led processes and materials. Saying that, our clients can have both. Using customised software to run our woodworking machine means we can create all manner of 3D carving and curved designs – no other company in the region is doing this kind of experimental, innovative work. We’ve also just installed a specialist oven that enables us to produce complex curved designs in other materials, including Corian.

“We pride ourselves on being able to respond to whatever the client wants, in whatever material they want. It’s a truly bespoke service.”

David continues: “Since expanding the team to include architectural designers and a dedicated kitchen studio, we are now equipped to provide everything, under one roof. The move to our brand new HQ in the South West is a natural transition from our heritage as artisan makers and craftsmen to a fully-fledged design studio and integrated manufacturing facility where our clients can have their ideas fully realised.”

With a wealth of knowledge across all aspects of the design and making process, Touch regularly collaborate with designers and architects at concept stage through to prototype construction details and systems. This collaborative approach enables both the designers and the artisans to push the boundaries, whilst clients benefit from outstanding results.

In addition to our craftsmanship and technology, materials are integral to the Touch service. A constant commitment to sourcing the finest materials from around the world ensures that clients benefit from an exciting blend of creative innovation and aesthetic ambition. A dedicated materials library offers private clients and their architects and interior designers to explore a huge range of products and finishes, many of which are exclusive to Touch Design. Regular trips to international partners, factories and international furniture fairs including Milan’s renowned Salon de Mobil, is another strong indication of the company's determination to remain ahead of the curve.
