Freshwest is a UK based design duo, established by Marcus Beck and Simon Macro. Beck studied fine art at the Manchester Metropolitan University, and spent many years producing limited edition furniture, while Macro studied at the University of Brighton and worked under renowned designer Thomas Heatherwick. Friends since childhood, the two established Freshwest in 2005, founded on shared design ideals. Working from their Wales studio and workshop, Freshwest embraces both experimental and functional design, driven to realise their own self-initiated concepts to create unique and exciting pieces. Also working across furniture, interiors and branding, the studio is not restricted to a single discipline, and continues to experiment with different ideas and genres.
