Relm was established in 2014 by Jason Stancombe. With over 20 years experience in the design industry, Jason has a love for interior and spatial design, with a keen eye for detailed joinery. He is influenced by modern design across multiple disciplines, and seeks to create furniture that is timeless – both in its aesthetic and its construction.
TDC - Tell us about your brand. What do you do?
Relm designs and fabricates finely crafted, designer furniture that beautifully incorporates a blend of custom materials and traditional joinery. Our products are designed to enhance the living and working environment.
We operate in two main streams – offering a range of designed products and designing and fabricating bespoke furniture. We cater to both residential and commercial markets – working alongside designers, architects, specifiers and general public.
TDC - What sets your brand apart?
Design is core to our business. It sets our products and our business apart. Over the last few years, we have been slowly developing our own style and aesthetic, with a focus on modern, clean and contemporary pieces.
TDC - What design ethos do you live by?
With an emphasis on simplicity, we are constantly striving towards a higher quality product. Quality materials, components and production methods ensure a long-lasting product — one that is enjoyed for generations, not consumed and thrown away. Sustainability is important to us, and we are interested in achieving our design objectives through sourcing sustainable products and production methods. We work with local manufacturers to develop components for our pieces and combine traditional skills to assemble our range in-house.
TDC - What's your favourite product in your range and why?
Born from a desire to create a contemporary product that showcases traditional hand skills, the Crop Stool is one of our most successful products. I love the details in the stool – the bridle joint and its holding pins, the aluminium seat and the flush meeting of the foot rails and legs.
TDC - What plans do you have for the future?
We are looking to expand our range of products, to develop a more holistic suite of homewares and furniture for residential and commercial customers. We are also keen to explore international markets.
From a design view-point, we are interested in increasing exploration of new materials and production methods to gain insights and develop new products and new ways of thinking.
