about us

Our Founders, Robert and Sylvia are Senior Interior Designers with over 25 years of experience. For many years they have been gaining experience in design and manufacture in order to make sure they can deliver the highest quality product to the customers. As a result they had created WRKBNCH as we know today.

Over the years they have continued to build a strong portfolio of designs and in 2017 opened their first showroom in Shoreditch, East London, where you can find a range of their products and someone to guide you through your next interiors project.

Since its beginnings, WRKBNCH has won multiple awards, such as the A Design award 2017, and have also been featured in some well-respected journals and magazines, continuing to design great products and spaces for our clients
