Red Block is taking a break from retail space as we have shifted our focus to custom commissioned furniture. We now operate out of our workshop space on Fern Street, Islington, within Stuart Pinkerton’s Vice Workshop. We have also set up another business in partnership with Stuart Pinkerton – Pink Block CNC, which will provide computerised routing services.
Who are you?
We are final year Industrial Design students who have been working on Red Block for the past year. We are passionate about functional design; we believe that sustainable furniture making is made with love out of high quality materials and efficient techniques.
What do you do?
Red Block is collaboration between Priscilla Tan and Martin Tauts. We utilise our industrial design background to create simple yet unique products.
We heard about this project about a year ago and always kept it in mind. About 2 months ago when we moved to Newcastle, we decided to apply and participate in this amazing opportunity to kick-off our project.
Red Block is aiming to become an industrial design studio which retails its own furniture and lighting products and offers full service industrial design solutions. Also, Red Block is founded to create an environment for collaboration between emerging designers.
