About Block Design

Tara Ashe, Lead Designer

Block Design began in 2000, shortly after I graduated. I was keen to combine a passion for design with my engineering background, to create a range of functional, beautiful lifestyle products.

The first Block product was a vase, since then we have added desk accessories, jewellery and more homeware to the collection.

Our UK Studio

20 years on I'm proud to lead a team of seven creatives, each integral to design and production. Each day the studio is a collaborative hub of creativity, colour and innovation.

Every one of our products begins life in the studio, situated above our workshop. We work hard to ensure we deliver the highest quality design and finish.

Our Products

Colour is integral to our collection. Palettes are carefully selected, considering current trends and also celebrating classic movements in design.

Using no more than two components, each product offers a simple functional solution for desk and home. We love bold, geometric lines and shapes.

Our Stockists

We work with the best independent retailers in the world such as Poketo and Papier Tigre. Our products can be found in design stores and museums internationally including Moma and Tate Modern.

We exhibit at trade shows in New York and London, my favourite time of year! We love meeting our stockists and catching up with other design companies.

Our Customers

Our products celebrate your creativity. We aim to empower you to achieve your personal and professional goals.

We're inspired when we see our products in your beautiful homes and studios, so please do keep tagging us on Instagram: @blockdesign
