We are a experimental design studio applying new technologies to considered everyday living.

We believe in comfort, in the fluidity

Making considered pieces more common.

Our work varies in complexity, blending across physical and digital worlds. Our philosophy is grounded in being functional pieces that can be held, used and become deeply familiar to us.

  • At the core of the practice lies the focus in crafting functional pieces that can be held, used and become deeply familiar to us. We imbue care and detail in hopes our pieces bring sensibility, comfort and enrichment to everyday living.

    Our work reflects the fluidity and motion of everyday life with direct and balanced aesthetics, creating pieces that are structured yet relaxed, pure and purposeful.

    All pieces are hand-finished, assembled, and packed in our studio in Bristol.

Commonmade is the design practice of Stephen Chan. Currently based in the UK, with roots in Hong Kong and South Korea.
