WE DESIGN, FABRICATE AND INSTALL BESPOKE SPACES AND OBJECTS FOR PEOPLE AND THEIR BUSINESSES.
Shape Studio was founded by brothers Tom and Rowan in 2014.
Working from Bristol and London, we deliver projects throughout the UK and Internationally, applying rigorous technical expertise with positivity and enthusiasm to bring ideas to reality.
Shape Studio employs a diverse range of people that bring a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge to the projects we deliver.
Along with numerous talents in design and drawing, Tom manages our team to ensure Shape Studios projects are delivered to the highest standard and to strict budgets.
After graduating in Architecture at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design Tom has pursued a career in design and fabrication.
Tom brings to SHAPE an in-depth design knowledge, along with skills in 3d modelling, CAD packages and visual design software.
Rowan has a broad and eclectic knowledge of materials and processes. Be it wood, resin, fibreglass or ferrous and non-ferrous metalwork, Rowan strives to master every material and process he encounters.
Rowan has a background in printmaking and since graduating in fine art at Byam Shaw School of Art he has worked in the theatre and marine industries. Working in these fields has ensured a deep knowledge of specialist finishes and effects as well as lifting, rope and rigging practises.
Within the studio Rowan applies his knowledge of processes with his unrelenting eye for aesthetics to make everything that Shape produces is both alluring and innovative.
James is a traditionally trained carpenter. He is truly happy when in front of the saw or lathe with a pile of unworked wood on one side and an enormous cutting list on the other...
As well as James's deep knowledge of construction and carpentry Shape Studio also values his use of levels and scribing tools, enabling us to install projects to the highest standard.
James brings with him a determined enthusiasm that puts the perfect energy into all our projects.
In his spare time he is an accomplished photographer and he keeps this eye for detail and composition with him whenever he is working.
Whether it be cutting and grinding metal or operating the laser cutter like no other, James will keep going until the job is done!
