Stoff Studios is a partnership founded in 2015 between Carys Briggs, a textile printer and Andrew Mason, a designer and maker of furniture.
Working from our studio spaces in South East London, we use traditional methods to create refined, intimate collections of textiles and furniture. We take a humble approach to our practice, drawing inspiration from the materials that we work with; the joy of dyes applied to fabric or the clarity brought about by a well placed joint. Often concentrating on either a single piece or a small batch of works we produce objects with a tactile nature, designed to work together in the home to create plains of colour and texture.
The fabric pieces are inspired by gestural mark making and mono printing techniques and their soft lines are reflected in the fluid, sculptural forms of our furniture.
We aim to produce truly collaborative collections, utilising our two fields of knowledge to create a more studied, detailed response to our initial inspirations, taking account of how our finished pieces, and the materials they are made from, exist within a wider context.
