“As a country, we produce some of the best quality and greatest variety of woods but also some of the most forward thinking and creative minds working with it as a material’ said Johnny Messum, Director of Messums Wiltshire. “From the bog wood cabinets of Thomas Heatherwick, to the coppice wood constructions by Sebastian Cox, we are home to some of the world’s most progressive makers and designers, whose works are not only beautiful objects, but metaphors for a shift towards objects that resonate with a different value – that of Time.”
