Bowater Collection
by Jan Hedzel Studio

Jan Hendzel Studio

Bowater is a new furniture collection that celebrates British craftsmanship and natural homegrown materials.

By marrying digital processes and traditional hand tooling, the range underpins the studio's philosophy of embracing both methods to push boundaries.

The collection has been designed to optimise the wastage produced. Smaller offcuts are used to create a range of accessories that support the function of larger pieces or work as decorative objects. Waste unsuitable for the studio is donated to, Men in Sheds.

Bowater helps to define a new palette associated with British timber and thus furthers commitment to sustainability by sourcing within UK borders.

This project has been longlisted in the furniture design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
