Rising young star of British furniture design George Winks founded Temper Studio in 2013. 

His design aesthetic is influenced by both traditional and modern construction techniques, from the complexity and precision of Japanese joinery to the modest beauty of the Shaker movement.

His Beam Table explores what George calls “symbolic friction” between structural elements: in this case English oak and cast concrete, fitted together like a spine to create a piece which is rich in material texture and architectural presence. The junction between the two materials is highlighted with a flash of coloured felt seen through the plate glass top.
Every Beam Table is made to commission in  Temper Studio’s Wiltshire workshops with clients specifying both timber and size.
