About us

Blue Bookends - Metal Bookends - Bookends UK

Block was formed in 2000; I had finished a degree in the applied arts which gave me a love of form and proportion. To translate this aesthetic into a producible product range I then went on to do an engineering course, this gave me the practical knowledge I needed to translate the aesthetic I now had into a working product range.

Twelve years on I’m still the lead designer at Block, we now have a small team of designers who are just as passionate as me. We have a very distinctive style and a love of colour, our passion for colour is the inspiration behind every design.

Contemporary design tends to be stark, minimal and in very masculine, corporate colour ways, we want to show that cutting edge design can be produced in confident, modern and trend driven colour ways.

We love the colours around us, we study colour in fashion, design and interiors to keep up to date with the ever changing trends, please visit our blog to see.

Colour is the essence of our brand, everything we do is driven by colour. Our colour choices are considered, intriguing, trend driven and brave.
