Temper Studio, a small workshop in rural Wiltshire, was founded by George Winks in April 2013. Winks has a deep love for beautiful well-made things and decided that if he wanted such things, he would just have to learn how to make them himself. The studio designs and builds idiosyncratic and contemporary furniture, household objects and the occasional structure. Besides their finely crafted bespoke and made-to-order furniture, they take great pleasure in producing a range of small objects for the kitchen and home. For the team at Temper Studio, there is something very therapeutic about shaping a piece of tree to reveal its grain and character as an object in itself, rather than as a part of some larger, more complex structure.
