Jacob, a young designer-maker with a studio in Peckham, laments the poor state of British woodlands – “only 7% are in ‘good ecological condition’ and we are importing timber because we grow so little.” Accordingly, Jacob’s The Isles Collection inspires and initiates change, combining a variety of British timbers in a beautiful patchwork of modern marquetry for tables, benches, cabinets and shelves, available to commission. From white oak and ash to lesser known alder and wild service, this furniture celebrates the vast – but threatened - variety of our native timbers. Pieces come with full provenance, to show not only the link between product and place but also how local sourcing reduces carbon miles.
