My aim is to design objects that bring a little bit of poetry into your home and are a pleasure to own and to use.
I established Charlotte Tangye Design in 2006. My Footprint shoe rack is proving very popular and has been chosen for a shop window for the launch of a range of shoes that moulded to the shape of your feet. I wanted the freedom to continue working on self initiated projects and decided that going it alone was the answer!
My products include interior accessories, tableware and lighting, and all are inspired in some way by living by the sea. I love the simplicity of line drawings as a means of conveying the essence of a place or thing and am constantly thinking of different ways to apply my illustrations. Even my shoe rack is really just a line drawing recreated in wire.
I utilise digital technologies to capture, collate, edit, and produce my designs. Some are digitally manufactured, others are made by more traditional methods, and all of my work is made in England.
