Mr. & Mrs. Tyrrell

My love of design,

in particular furniture, has been passionate ever since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1987 with a Master of Arts Degree in furniture design.
Vico Magistretti (a furniture god) was one of my tutors and it was him that enticed me to Italy, and that's where I got my first job collaborating with many other design legends, such as Matteo Thun, Micheli Deluchi, Perry King & Santigo Miranda.
I was privileged enough to have designed for many historic companies such as Zanotta, Driadi, Alessi, Arzberg and WMF, designing a whole host of products from furniture and lighting to cutlery and ceramics. It was such a wonderful time in design's history.. Memphis had just exploded into the scene and Italy was in the Hot seat. I had Three years of pure glamour and I got to be called »Àrchitectto«.
After a short spell back in the UK working for Terrance Conran, whilst sharing a studio workshop with Tom Dixon (name dropping to perfection) I was lured away to work in Japan, collaborating with idée in Tokyo and stayed working in Asia for five years. One thing I am certain of, there’s a whole host of fantastic art and design out there, some known some unknown. It is my mission to discover it on your behalf wherever it may be and offer it to you for sale through our new, exciting online shop, The Room.

I hope you enjoy.
