SIMPLE. QUIET. FUNCTIONAL
Influenced by the complex precision of Japanese joinery and the honest manufacturing of the American Shaker workshops combined with a love of modern construction materials – Temper produces usable objects with a sense of architectural permanence, and fine craftsmanship.
The workshop, located in rural Wiltshire, is more than just a place of production, it is a laboratory. Temper believe that play, prototyping, risk, failure, stubbornness, flexibility and labour are all essential aspects of the design process.
Temper’s aim is to design without dogma and to learn from the materials through incessant experimentation – ultimately, to produce pieces that are both quietly beautiful and intellectually fascinating.
