Andrew Lee designs and makes custom furniture for the home or workplace, drawing inspiration from nature, where often a simple beauty results from an economy of effort and the minimum use of materials. He worked initially as a boat builder prior to spending five years as a cabinetmaker manufacturing top quality one-off pieces of furniture. The basis of good craftsmanship was therefore already in place when he felt the need to create his own designs.
 
After completing a two year Foundation course at Central St Martins School of Art, followed by a degree in 3D Design from Middlesex University, he set up his own company in 1994
