Glenn Rushbrooke and Samantha Robb are a design partnership specialising in making contemporary furniture & accessories from reclaimed & natural resources.

They are very much inspired by the decay and rawness of materials such as oak, slate and metal, yet use these materials to produce pieces with clean lines and a modern feel.
