My name, if you hadn’t guessed, is Charlie Beresford. I have been designing and making things for the last 20 years, alongside working in the fields of audio visual art and design. My practice covers a broad spectrum from furniture to site-specific outdoor storage spaces and ancillary accommodation units. I have experience in external and interior design.

The design practice also extends to the design of large scale sculptural instruments like the ‘Sonic Spider’ that was shown at the Oxford IF Science festival.

Having trained as a fine artist I try to find solutions that are not just functional but aesthetically pleasing, always keeping in mind the client’s budget.

Where possible I like to use repurposed materials and enjoy the fact that it often leads to more interesting solutions and can give projects a look of being more established.

Should it be required, I am happy to work alongside structural engineers and within a team. I am comfortable taking a hands-on approach with each project and try to maintain a pragmatic methodology.
