With her distinctive fusion of minimalist refinement and structural precision, interdisciplinary British designer Miranda Watkins, creates unique, innovative designs for contemporary spaces. Entirely adaptable across space and scale, her designs comfortably bridge the boundaries between design and art. The scale, finish and materials used are often adapted to create unique, site-specific commissions from domestic settings to grand-scale public spaces.

Miranda creates objects that are thought provoking, visually engaging, often tactile, sometimes playful and always pleasing to use as well as to look at. She has the deepest respect for skill and technique, often working closely with local, highly skilled craftsmen and engineers. Miranda strives to create beauty in her designs, from which she hopes derive simple everyday pleasure for those who own a piece of her work.

The complete collection comprises her trademark dynamic kinetic mobiles, elegant light installations, furniture, tabletop products and jewellery. Miranda’s understanding of materials is key to her working process and contributes to the compelling beauty of her objects, while also being specific to their function. Whether hand crafted or precision engineered, all materials are high-grade and flawlessly hand finished in British workshops.
