Furniture hacker Max is a passionate eco-designer who restores everyday waste objects and playfully upcycles them into beautiful accessories and functional pieces of furniture. From his Bedfordshire studio, he designs and manufactures a range of handmade products including chairs made from shopping trolleys, roll top baths transformed into sofas, and magnificent desks produced from aeroplane wings. Max is also the proud designer of an amplified sofa.

Max graduated from Bournemouth University in Product Design and Visualisation in 2000. He will work with whatever he can find lying around at home to design and build something new and beautiful. Whether it be creating shelves out of an old door, or a side table out of a washing machine drum! – this man can build it.

“We could make... Something that tells a bit of a story about the contributor as well – something that gets their personality across”.
