Baines & Fricker is a husband and wife team: Steve Baines has been a furniture maker for number of years and Eliza Fricker has worked as a illustrator and a screen printer. They design and make furniture and accessories in their Brighton workshop and use British materials wherever possible. They launched in at 100% Design in 2011 and since were a Blueprint finalists for Best New Product and designed interior for Silo, the UK's first zero waste restaurant.
Influences range from industrial architecture to street signs. The collection reflects their fresh approach to design: their furniture is practical, robust, simple and comfortable.
