MannMade London is a London-based furniture company that designs and makes refined, industrial furniture from their studio and workshop in Battersea, south London. Founded by architect Sebastian Mann, who also runs architectural and interior design practice Minale + Mann, the company’s designs marry craftsmanship and traditional woods with minimal, contemporary forms and industrial materials.
Their debut, 13-piece collection is called Battersea, with each design named after a street in the area. The range includes everything from streamlined shelving units and dressing tables to consoles, mirrors and magazine slings, all handmade to order in their workshop. You can definitely see the influence of architectural design in the furniture’s clean lines and the bold, black frames that tie the collection together.
As a brand, we are inspired to create cutting edge designs and push the boundaries on contemporary concepts of furniture aesthetics. Our philosophy is that good design should be timeless, and not follow a particular fad or fashion.
The pieces in the collection combine slender, black, steel frames with rich walnut and ash wood as well as Valchromat, a matt, high-density compressed fibre panel that contrasts in texture with the other materials. This rich material palette give the designs an elegant, urban feel that’s luxurious without being flashy or over the top.
‘The aesthetic drive for all of our furniture is refined industrial,’ says Mann. ‘For the Battersea collection, we wanted to create an urban vibe inspired by London, as well as our immediate surroundings such as the Battersea Power Station. We wanted to produce a range of furniture that had some industrial chic.’
