Inside the Studio : Chung & Tyson
I first met Chung Tyson Workshop at The Hepworth Wakefield Christmas event, and was wowed by their unique and beautifully finished selection of desk tidies and stationery. The workshop is made up of architect-makers Ming Chung and Nick Tyson who’s practice encompasses design, construction and teaching. They are interested in the inventive use of building materials that explore qualities of hand-craft alongside digital fabrication techniques.
They are based in Manchester in a converted turn-of-the-century Coach House and brick annexe that was self-built in 2013. The studio and workshop share a courtyard garden that allows each space a connection to the garden as well as views to each other during a working day.
Makers House is all about collaboration and shared exhibiting opportunities so I love to see what other makers our interviewees champion, in this case Chung and Tyson submitted two beautiful examples of other maker’s work so i have decided to bend the rules a bit and show case both of them!
