Robins’ inspiration comes from early experiences, having discovered Charles Rennie Mackintosh at college and creating a replica piece of his furniture. Then early in his career he worked with Alan Peters and Martin Grierson, so has been influenced by designers from both the past and present. Nature, architecture, shape and light also pay a large part in his designs with influences from buildings such as La Defense in Paris and the Lighthouse Hotel in Galle Sri Lanka.
Whilst working on a project, Robin works closely with clients to incorporate their thoughts and ideas into his designs.
Robin has won four Guild Marks awarded by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers for excellence in Design and Craftsmanship.
